Abstract
Capture and sequestration of carbon dioxide is one of the most critical challenges today for businesses and governments worldwide. Thousands of emitting power plants and industries worldwide face this costly challenge – reduce the CO2 emissions or pay penalties. One possibility for carbon dioxide sequestration is its fixation in microalgae. Microalgae can sequester CO2 from flue gases emitted from fossil fuel-fired refinery plants and units, thereby reducing emissions of a major greenhouse gas. One ton microalgae require for their growth 1,8 tons of CO2 (theoretically). Microalgae thus are large consumer of CO2. Combine their affinity for CO2 with the fact that ...
