Microalgae are a potential source of renewable energy due to their fast growth, high content of lipid, coupled with no requirement of fertile land. The deposition of nitrogen compounds favours the microalgae growth, and their excess in ponds develops the process of eutrophication. The industries should follow emission limits of these compounds determined by their environmental agency. Many researchers have been studying the use of wastewaters to cultivate microalgae. The purpose of this paper is...
