Simultaneous removal of harmful algal blooms and microcystins using microorganism- and chitosan-modified local soil

Article English OPEN
Li, H; Pan, G;

Cyanobacterial harmful algal blooms (cyano-HAB) and microcystins (MCs) can cause potential threat to public health. Here, a method for simultaneous removal of cyano-HAB and MCs was developed using chitosan modified local soil (MLS) flocculation plus microorganism modifi... View more
