A Review on Challenges and Limitations for Algae-Based Wastewater Treatment
Eutrophication-promoting phosphorous loads originating from wastewater treatment plants are commonly controlled by chemical precipitation in the tertiary treatment phase. However, this approach is costly and generates additional waste. Therefore, inexpensive and sustainable methods for wastewater post-treatment are wanted, and the use of microalgae is recognized as such method. This review discusses the identified limitations and offers possible improvements and modifications for wastewater phycobioremediation.
