The present piece of work was designed to reclamate the sugar industry effluent by blue-green algae. The effluent of the sugar mill at 3.0% dilution level is safe and did not show any toxic effect rather showed better growth by Westiellopsis when compared to Anabaena. Westiellopsis and Anabaena both could change the brown colour of the effluent to a higher degree when compared to other BGA studied. The study indicated that Westiellopsis is a better choice over Anabaena and can be used as phytoreclamation agents.
