Reduction of co2 emission by means of co2 storage in coal seams in the silesian coal basin of poland (management of ghg emissions) recopol

Objective

In this project the feasibility of greenhouse gas emission reduction by CO2 storage in subsurface coal seams is studied. Locally produced CO2 or flue gas from a power plant is injected in the coal at a selected test site in the Silesian Coal Basin (Poland), while CH4 is produced simultaneously. The CH4 can be used as fuel for clean energy generation, without net CO2 emissions. Research is mandatory in this new and complex field of technology to design an optimum development plan for the site. This research involves laboratory work, model simulations, and investigation of time-lapse monitoring. Existing wells at the test site and a newly drilled well will be used for the test, and the injected gas is monitored in time. Together with an evaluation and field up scaling of the results the project will be concluded with a socio-economical and a future technological evaluation, and implemented in a Decision Support System.
