Carbon dioxide fixation and Bio-fuel

Carbon dioxide fixation
Microalgae fix carbon dioxide by their photosynthesis.  Microalgal biomass contains approximately 50% carbon by dry weight. 
All of this carbon is typically derived from carbon dioxide.  
Producing 100 tons of algal biomass fixes roughly 183 tons of carbon dioxide.

Microalgae are the most efficient biological producer of oil and may be one of the Earth's most important renewable fuel crops, due to the higher photosynthetic efficiency, higher productivities, a faster growth rate than higher plants.
