—Coimmobilization of the freshwater microalgae in alginate beads with the microalgae bacterium under continuous synthetic wastewater culture conditions significantly removed ammonium ions efficiently. It is proposed that coimmobilization of a microalgae with microalgae bacteria can serve as a tool in devising novel wastewater treatments.
—Ammonium removal, microbial immobilization, microalgae, wastewater treatments.
