Abstract
Carbon dioxide (CO2) plays a vital role in climate change at present scenario. Though there are various mode of CO2 emission into the atmosphere, emission from Thermal Power Plant using Coal as fossil fuel stands first as per IPCC data. A study for control of CO2 emission from point source in Thermal Power Plant is presented. Though there are various methods available for sequestration of CO2 is available, Biological mode of sequestration is adopted in this study due to its several advantages. The study was conducted in two modes: (i) Batch mode and (ii) Continuous mode. The result obtained in the batch mode operation was presented. Mixed algal cultures were used in the study for sequestering CO2 from raw flue gas obtained by burning Lignite coal. As a result, the efficiency of CO2 sequestration from flue gas using microalgae, species identification, calculation of algal biomass, utilization of wastewater as nutrients which is generated in the thermal power plant and modifications to be made in the continuous operation were discussed.

Key-Words / Index Term
