In this paper we summarize some of the the biotechnological applications of oxygenic photosynthetic microorganisms (OPhM), cyanobacteria and green microalgae, with special emphasis on the followings topics: i) epuration of domestic waste waters with simultaneous new biomass synthesis as source for dedicated chemicals (proteins, lipids, pigments, antioxidants etc.,); ii) gamma irradiation at non growth inhibitory doses in order to increase lipid content of the cells; iii) the synthesis of metal nanoparticles by these photosynthetic microorganisms,; iv) the use of living photosynthetic biomass as biocrusts to increase the chemical parameters of soil and physiological characteristics of plants; v) the study their bioelectrochemical properties for biotechnological applications such as the conversion of solar energy in electric energy. These topics are directly related to the experimental activities of the authors and cover partially the huge potential of these microorganisms.
