Abstract:

Dairy industry is one of the leading food industries in India. Dairy is one of the major industries causing water pollution with its large water consumption approximately 50 m3wastewater daily with considerable concentration of organic and inorganic matter. In present study cyanobacterial species were isolated from dairy industries wastewater and explored for removal of nutrients from dairy wastewater simultaneously biomass produced again used for extraction of high value compounds. The overall percentage of nitrogen reduction was 75.22%, 81.69% and 76.56% by Oscillatoria, Phormidium species and its consortium, respectively, while phosphate reduction percentage was 86%, 94% and 90.66% by Oscillatoria, Phormidium species and its consortium, respectively after 18 days. In case of high value compounds extraction from Oscillatoria, Phormidium species and its consortium, Oscillatoria species produced highest amount of C-phycocyanin 0.133 mg/L and Phycoerythrin 0.221 mg/L compare to Phormidium species and its consortium. The lipid content from Oscillatoria species was about 175.02mg/l-1 which can be used for biofuel production.
