CO2 consumption and oxygen production
Like all photosynthetic organisms, microalgae consume CO2 as a source of carbon. In the absence of this compound, growth is considered null, just as an insufficient supply is often the factor limiting productivity. According to the average chemical composition of the biomass of the algae, 1.8 tons of CO2 are needed to produce a ton of biomass.
The cycle begins with the fixation of atmospheric CO2 through the processes of photosynthesis, carried out by microalgae. These organisms incorporate atmospheric CO 2 into the metabolic processes for the formation of organic matter and Oxygen production in the same proportions as in the consumption of CO2.
