N.H. Brahmbhatt and Rinku V. Patel

Abstract

The industrial wastewater and algae were collected from Ankleshwar GIDC area. The collected sample of Pithophora sp. were treated with Chromium ion at different concentrations and at different duration of incubation periods. Investigations of the various bio-chemical parameters and its effect and accumulation of Chromium by Pithophora sp was studied. In conclusion, Pithophora sp. was able to grow in Chromium contaminated sites and to accumulate significant amounts of Chromium with a high transfer factor.
