Biofixation of CO 2 by microalgae has become an effective carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) technology and it has the potential for large-scale application in decreasing CO 2 emission from combustion flue gases. In general, the production of the microalgae under flue gas CO 2 carbon sequestration is closely related with the algae species, culture methods, biological conditions, gas conditions and the CO 2 concentration. In this paper, the production parameter (biomass) for microalgae

Further, the interacted analysis indicated that the carbon source, nitrogen source, cell inoculation density and light intensity had important effect on microalgae production.
