    Abstract :

    With the increase in the number of industries the generation of high strength wastewater has been noticed now days. There are so many researches going on the purification of wastewater. A newly developed wastewater treatment by using the different species of algae is gaining much importance. The present study is to investigate efficiency of algae in treatment of wastewater. The algae selected for the treatment of wastewater was chlorella Vulgaris species. The various characteristics of wastewater like Biological oxygen demand (BOD), Chemical oxygen demand (COD), turbidity, pH, Total dissolved solid (TDS) was checked initially and was also observed by using the chlorella Vulgaris species of algae. It was observed that the percentage reduction rate of different parameters of wastewater was: BOD-92.42%, COD-86.95%, TDS-75%, and Turbidity-70%. The result observed shows the potential of chlorella Vulgaris species of algae for treating the wastewater. The use of different species of algae for the treatment of wastewater is economical and is also found environmentally safe alternative for treating wastewater.
