dc.description.abstractThis study illustrates the efficiency of microalgae-based treatment system for the bioremediation of Yamuna water. Organic and Inorganic substances that are released into the water because of domestic, agricultural and industrial activities leads to heavy pollution of rivers. Many times it becomes inconvenient that this pollution cannot be treated by primary and secondary treatment process. In such cases, the tertiary treatment becomes necessary for remediation of river water. Microalgae are one of the effective agents to carry out the tertiary treatment. Microalgae grow by using their necessary nutrients from the wastewater by absorption leading to tertiary water treatment and finally produce biomass of great worth. In the present study, we checked all the physicochemical parameters like pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), biological oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) during our 20 days of study and observed a significant change in all these parameters, specifically ~37% reduction in both Biological oxygen demand and Chemical oxygen demand was achieved while the DO was increased by 116% during study.en_US
