Abstract: The demand for natural resources is rising tremendously as a result of the current urban expansion. Water and energy are the two main focuses of the environmental scientific society due to their anticipated scarcity. A desalination approach using algae ponds along with an electricity generation technique are provided in the present study. This is achieved through the use of Chlorella vulgaris, a fresh water algae residing in ponds, and large scale chamber-less bio- photo voltaic cell (BPV). Chlorella vulgaris was found to generate an electric current from the pond whilst causing concurrent desalination. This study proves the possibility of simultaneous power generation and salt removal using Chlorella vulgaris and opens doors for massive research potential in the fields of renewable energy and desalination.
