Despite the algal diversity and relatively inexpensive algal biomass, there has been little commercial exploitation of these plants for treatment of wastewater. Bioremediation is a cheap and efficient method of decontamination that has become increasingly popular now a days to reduce environmental pollution. In urban and semi urban colonies sewage disposal has become an ecological problem. The effluent discharge from residences and industries constitute a major source of water pollution. A number of methods has been developed for removal of such polluted substances like precipitation, evaporation, ion-exchange etc. Algae are important bioremediation agents, and are already being used in wastewater treatment. The potential for algae in wastewater remediation is however much wider in scope than its current role. This paper identifies the area where research gives to the world an “Algal Based Bioremediation” for cleaning the water bodies. In this review paper we observed the effectiveness of alga for bioremediation of wastewater.
