Algal Multipurpose Benefit

Iyasu Gudisa


Algae are the mass groups of photosynthetic agent that are able to contribute the variety food component and oxygen for the planet.  The review emphasized on the benefits of algae for multipurpose. As a result, several research paper finding reviewed to be informed about algal benefit for different purposes. Many paper findings agreeing the algal potential to regulate the environment by reducing the concentration of corbondioxide, releasing the oxygen for organism’s respiration and aeration to decompose the pollutant into usable nutrients. . And also several findings ascertain us the algae importance to increase the crop production by fixing the nitrogen biomass in agricultural fields and contribute to enhance high crop biomass production by change the nitrogen gas to utilizable form. They have also the potential to indicate the environmental pollution and have the potential to treat the wastes for reducing the pollutants concentration.  Algae also contain all essential amino acids, Iodine, vitamins B1, B2, B6, niacin, carotene and minerals, while the presence of heavy metals is negligible. They are also used as extracts in food, cosmetics, and industrial uses. Moreover, they have been reported for their potential medicinal uses as antioxidant, anticancer, antiviral properties. Algal potential to produce biofuels production also has been many scholars’ research findings. Generally algae are much important for ecology, economy, nutrition, health and production of fuels.
