Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2012056126A1] The invention relates to a process for the biological capture of CO2 comprising the implementation of a photosynthesis reaction using cyanobacteria on hydrogen carbonate ions of a carbonate system comprising calcium, enabling the production of biomass and calcite (CaCO3). The invention enables utilization of CO2 for energy purposes and mineral sequestration of CO2.
