Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are rising and this is leading to unprecedented climate changes which are causing floods, forest fires, weather changes, draughts etc. effecting global economy There are physical, chemical, biochemical, aquatic and geological techniques for the sequestration, storage and utilization of CO2. Utilization of CO2 through some of the physical and chemical techniques has been suggested as a circular economy. However, natural biosequestration technique seems to be a time tested technique for the permanent capture and utilization of CO2.
