Abstract

The objective of the present study is to investigate the bioremediation of anaerobically digested Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) by using microalgae, chlorella vulgaris and scenedesmus dimorphus. This work addresses the potential of both microalgae strains for nutrients removal efficiency, specifically in ammonia, phosphorus, Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) to the microalgae. Cultivation of Scenedesmus dimorphus and Chlorella vulgaris with anaerobic POME as a medium attained biomass ranged 0.26 to 3.4 mg/L and 0.34 to 4.4 mg/L in DCW (Dry Cell Weight) respectively. Scenedesmus dimorphus showed that the reduction of ammoniacal nitrogen (NH3-N) 99.5%, ammoniumc(NH4) 91.5%,:Phosphorus (P) 98.8%, Phosphate ion (PO3- 4 97.2%, COD 86% and BOD 86.5% in anaerobic POME. While Chlorella vulgaris revealed that removal efficiency of ammoniacal nitrogen 61.0%, ammonium53.8%, Phosphorus 84.0%, Phosphate ion 66.2%, COD 50.5% and BOD 61.6%.
