ABSTRACT

 

The climatic condition now a day keeps on changing which affect our livelihood. There are a lot of reasons behind this but the most important reason is global warming. Global warming is mainly caused by Green House Gases (GHG) so it should be limited or checked in the environment.GHG includes methane, carbon dioxide, CFCs etc out of which carbon dioxide gas is the main culprit for global warming. Here in this article, it is elaborated that how this carbon dioxide gas is trapped by using microorganisms like bacteria. This article also includes the microorganism resilience in carbon dioxide rich environment. The advantage of carbon dioxide sequestration through bacteria is that, it is least cost effective and moiré environmentally sound.

 

Keywords : Global warming, Micro-organism, Green House Gases, Carbon sequestration, Minimal Salt Media (MSM)
