  • Provides in-depth up to date basic and applied aspects of carbon concentrating mechanism of photosynthetic microorganisms
  • Offers key insights of a sustainable approach that can be used to help prevent global warming resulting from carbon dioxide pollution
  • Summarises a range of possible commercially valuable products and synergistic benefits from integrated sustainable approaches of photosynthetic microorganisms based CO2 mitigation technology
  • Describes a practical tool for pursuing research interests in sustainable energy and environment development
This book provides a cohesive overview of carbon concentrating mechanism (CCM) of photosynthetic microorganisms such as cyanobacteria and microalgae. This unique mechanism is by far the most spectacular physiological process in algal growth and productivity. Due to this fact, the study of CCM has captivated phycologists, algal molecular and cellular biologists, botanists, agriculturalists, crop growers, and most recently algal biofuel researchers, around the world. In the brief, the authors draw a contextual in-depth overview, on the basis of the latest findings, to develop an account of the core concepts regarding state-of-the-art of CCM. Subsequent chapters use this account to explore carbon concentrating mechanism of cyanobacteria and microalgae. They highlight the concise summaries of cutting-edge research and integrated industrial applications of photosynthetic microorganism based CO2 mitigation system, across a wide spectrum of energy and environment. The brief also presents sustainable perspectives of carbon concentrating mechanism in the context of current global energy and environmental challenges.
