Global warming due to increased CO2 emission has become a major issue today. In this regard, algae offer a plethora of opportunities due to its photosynthetic route of conversion of CO2 to biomass which is manifold higher than that of plants. In this regard, this paper highlights the issues, challenges and opportunities generated through algal sequestration of CO2. The paper talks about various factors that enhance the efficiency of algal consumption as well as accumulation of CO2. The parameters like mode of cultivation, photobioreactors design considerations and harvesting of algal biomass have been given due importance. The perspectives offered will provide a deep insight into development of an integrated technology for making CO2 sequestration commercially viable.
