An experimental study using microalgae Scenedesmus sp. growth rates are conducted in varies of environmental conditions that aim to access the growth rates effects of microalgae Scenedesmus sp. tolerance and capability to sustain in different type of abiotic conditions. Synthetics aqueous of Basal Bold Medium (BBM) was used to cultivate in batch mode using reactor flask under different abiotic parameters such as pH, temperature, lux intensity and photo period with objective of assessing the microalgae Scenedesmus sp. growth rates. These conditions are chosen due to its influential key on microalgae growth metabolism and nature of environmental where microalgae utilization will took place. The initial concentrations of microalgae are kept constant at 1000cells/ml as the other environmental factors are varies based on the nature of selected wastewater and surrounding nature. The optimum growth rates and tolerance of Scenedesmus sp. subjected to abiotic conditions are pH 7 to pH8, temperature is 250C to 300C, photoperiod is 12/12 (Light/Dark)(hr) and lux intensity of 4000. Microalgae Scenedesmus sp. can easily grow and adapt well in nature conditions as the optimums are precisely close to nature conditions.
