The green alga Scenedesmus was investigated for its ability to remove nitrogen from anaerobic digestion effluent possessing high ammonium content and alkalinity in addition to its growth characteristics. Nitrate and ammonium were indistinguishable as a nitrogen source when the ammonium concentration was at normal cultivation levels. Ammonium up to 100ppm NH(4)-N did not inhibit cell growth, but did decrease final cell density by up to 70% at a concentration of 200-500ppm NH(4)-N. Inorganic… CONTINUE READING
