Mitigation of Global Warming Through Biological Carbon Sequestration Using Micro Algae

Avinash D Patil [5] | Nandkishor Patil [2]


Abstract: The world has been threatened due to the ongoing global warming and climate change due to the bulk discharge of anthropogenic green house gases into the atmosphere through the combustion of fossil fuels, automobile exhaust gases, flue gas from the thermal power plant and other industries and forest fire caused by the natural and manmade factors. Combating the global warming and climate change by sequestering carbon through micro algae has now become the matter of great interest and a ray of hope. Micro algae utilizes carbon in the presence of sunlight to undergo photosynthesis and accumulate huge biomass in short period of time compared to terrestrial vegetation along with yielding diverse byproducts of domestic and industrial importance. Utilizing micro algae efficiently for carbon sequestration would be a mile stone towards an environmental ethics which could bond a better relationship between the man and environment in a sustainable way.
