Carbon dioxide is one of the unfavorable gases which will be released into the atmosphere in different ways such as the burning of fossil fuel, factory emissions, vehicle smoke, etc. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that will lead to global warming, climatic changes, and acid rain. Photosynthesis is the production of starch and oxygen with the help of carbon dioxide and water under sunlight in the chloroplast. It is a natural phenomenon carried out by plants. Moreover, this is one great activity conducted by plants, because they absorb harmful gases and release oxygen, which is very helpful for the process of living for all organisms. A team of Chinese scientists found a way to synthesize starch artificially in 2021, which is a great achievement in the field of science. Therefore, here they collected carbon dioxide gas from the atmosphere in order to conduct these reactions. This is a very effective method where the useless, toxic, and harmful gases like carbon dioxide are converted finally into a useful product. Therefore, this can promote the formation of a sustainable bio-based society. 

Keywords: Starch, Carbon dioxide, Photosynthesis, Renewable Energy, Oxygen.
