The use of biosorbent for heavy metal removal has revealed enormous potential of algae for biosorption. In present work the dried biomass of spirogyra hyaline was used as biosorbent for removal of nickel ions from waste water solution. The effect parameter temperature, pH and time on percentage removal of nickel ions from waste water solution is evaluated. The result showed that highest removal efficiency is 98% for nickel ions separation at optimum operating condition of 400 c temperature, pH 6 and time 20min.
