Effect of Storage on Nutrient Stability in Algal Pond Effluent

Muhammad Ayyaz Khan and T.H. Flower

This study was conducted to investigate the possible changes in the composition of effluent in relation to its nutrient stability during storage and its ability to supply plant available nutrients. The samples collected from high rate algal ponds (HRAP) were stored with the aim of storage effect on nutrient stability in the algal pond effluent. The trend of change in the chemical composition of algal pond effluent suggested that it can be stored for a week at 2°C with only minor changes in ammonium, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate and potassium during storage. Fresh or stored samples can be applied to the pot experiments but their analysis prior to each application will be essential.
