Some O2 binds to RuBisCo due to which fixation of CO2 is reduced and forms phosphoglycerate and phosphoglycerate instead of forming 2 molecules of PGA is called photorespiration. In this pathway no sugars, nor of ATP is synthesised.

There is also release of CO2 with the utilization of ATP molecules.
