Microalgae have been applied to cultivate in many kinds of wastewater to improve water quality for years. Especially grow microalgae in agro-industrial wastewater, which rich in nitrogen and phosphorus pollutants meanwhile microalgae can be used to reduce the inorganic and organic load of these wastewaters at a minimal cost. The present investigation was aimed in determination of effect of growth of microalgae on physico-chemical properties of different dilutions of untreated and treated dairy industrial effluent such as pH, Total solids, Chemical oxygen demand, Nitrate, Phosphate. The results showed that in 40 per cent of untreated effluent and in 100 per cent of treated effluent highest amount of physico-chemical parameters were decreased. Out of five strains used such as Chlorella MA-6, Chlorella MA-14, Botryococcus MA-5, Botryococcus sp., Scenedesmus sp., strain Chorella MA-6 reduced all the parameters significantly compared to all other strains.

Keywords: Dairy, Effluent, Microalgae, Chemical oxygen demand, Chlorella MA-6
