Five species of microalgae Chlorella vulgaris, Scenedesmus quadricauda, Euglena gracilis, Ankistrodesmus convolutus and Chlorococcum oviforme, were screened for their ability to grow in treated landfill leachate (TL) using shake flask cultures. The treated leachate had undergone previous treatment through mechanical aeration in treatment ponds at the landfill site. The five algae, except for C. oviforme, were able to grow in medium containing up to 50% TL. Two high-rate algal ponds (HRAP… CONTINUE READING
