Phyto or bioremediation is an effective, economical and ecofriendly technology for metal detoxification from industrial waste water. Elevated aluminium level causes acidifcation of water which may affect the aquatic animal and human health. To dilute the aluminum toxicity levels from industrial waste water phytoremediation is a one of the best approaches. Bioremediation has provided problems solving opportunities in the field of solid waste by detoxifying effluents. Blue green algae is the primatitive life form on the earth, which can be edible and may be used to treat the industrial water containing heavy metal. In the current study the aluminium remediation ability investigated with flamentous Cyanobacteria spirulina and their efficiencies were compared. Results indicated that the spirulina is very efficient to detoxify the aluminium from waste water, significant improvement of photosynthetic pigments and sugars were observed. An integrated eco-friendly approach to the industrial wastewater treatment through live spirulina based phytoremediation is envisaged as part of the environmental management.
