Algae naturally absorbs CO2 during photosynthesis at a much higher rate than terrestrial plants. This makes it an effective tool for capturing and converting significant amounts of CO2 into biomass, aiding in the fight against climate change.

Traditional methods, like afforestation or carbon capture and storage (CCS), have limitations in terms of scalability, land usage, and long-term storage. Algae-based sequestration is scalable, requires less land, and converts CO2 into valuable products like biofuels, making it both an environmental and economic solution.
