PHYCOREMEDIATION OF OIL REFINERY EFFULENT USING CYANOBACTERIUMS. Murugesan, R. Dhamotharan and J. Kamaleswari
Petroleum refineries generate a considerable amount of wastewater and release a complex set of oxygen demanding materials into the natural environment. Phycoremediation of effluents by using cyanobacterium in the environment plays an important role in cycling and recycling of wastewater in biotechnological applications. In the present study the effect of Spirulina platensis in the degradation of oil refinery effluent, has been studied and the results are discussed.This study has thus established that the cyanobacterium Spirulina platensis can be used as a bioremediation agent as it brings about reduction of pollutants like inorganic, compound.
