About this book

This book brings together environmental scientists and engineers to discuss the development of new approaches and methodologies which utilize microalgae for biological wastewater treatment. The researchers report their recent findings on microalgal removal of nutrients, heavy metals and other organic pollutants from sewage and industrial effluents.


Immobilized algal technology for wastewater treatment purposes; removal of copper by free and immobilized microalgae, Chlorella vulgaris; biosorption of heavy metals by microalgae in batch and continuous systems; microalgal removal of organic and inorganic metal species from aqueous solution; bioaccumulation and biotransformation of arsenic, antimony and bismuth compounds by freshwater algae; metal ion binding by biomass derived from nonliving algae, lichens, water hyacinth root and sphagnum moss; metal resistance and accumulation in cyanobacteria.
