Coimmobilized Microalgae and Nitrifying Bacteria for Ammonium Removal

Xue Bai, Haixin Gu, and Yulong Li
Abstract—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.

Index Terms—Ammonium removal, microbial immobilization, microalgae, wastewater treatments.
