Abstract:

Coal and other industries produced waste in the form of CO2, SOx and NOx gases. CO2 gas from industrial waste is a causal factor of greenhouse emission which could lead toward global warming. Chemical or biological mitigation can be a solution to face this environmental damage problem which is due to excess CO2. Biological mitigation is one of the efficient ways to fixate CO2. Lately, people chose microalgae, due to its capability on CO2 fixation, also could produce biomass, along with other metabolite content it has. Chlorella a kind of microalgae is a strain which could resist toward high CO2 level, and could potentially produce plenty of biomass, Chlorophyll a and Chlorophyll b. This study aimed to determine the impact of CO2 (with concentration of 0.0%, 0.8%, 1.5%, and 2.3%) toward pH of the medium, specific growth, then the content of Chlorophyll a and Chlorophyll b. The growth of microalgae is determined by measuring the cell density using UV-Vis Spectrophotometer at 680 nm. Chlorophyll a and Chlorophyll b determined using Spectrophotometer. The result showed that the 2.3% concentration of CO2 resulting from combustion altered the pH of the medium, and increased toward a higher production of biomass, Chlorophyll a, and Chlorophyll b.
