Abstract—Autotrophs play an important role in remediation of wastewater particularly domestic waste through it photosynthetic ability. To investigate the role of algae in wastewater treatment algal samples were collected from polluted water. These samples were used to isolate most dominant and pollution tolerant algae such as C. vulgaris and S. quadricauda cultures in BBM and used for the treatment. The domestic wastewater samples used in this study were collected from sewage wastewater treatment plant Bopodi from Pune city. To study the role of microalgae in wastewater, the following protocols were used, (i) Wastewater treated with culture of C. vulgaris and S. quadricauda; and (ii) Wastewater treated without culture of C. vulgaris and S. quadricauda (Control). Samples were periodically (every 5th day) analyzed for physico-chemical parameters such as pH, phosphate, nitrate, BOD and COD using standard methods. C. vulgaris shows the best removal capacity of nitrate and COD while S. quadricauda shows BOD and phosphate reduction. Present investigation focuses on the bioremediation of wastewater by using micro algae. 

Index Terms—bioremediation, wastewater, microalgae, physico-chemical parameters
