Carbon dioxide can be not just stored, but used as a raw material for making valuable products, such as motor fuels, fodder proteins and amino acids, and bioactive compounds, as well as for growing microalgae. The proposed basic and related technologies are waste-free. The by-product is oxygen.
The suggested CO2 processing method turns carbon dioxide into a basis for microalgae feed using special bioreactors. The microalgae are then processed as well. As compared to other carbon dioxide chemical bonding methods, the proposed technology features low energy consumption, it does not use expensive catalysts and does not require any hydrogen supply.
