Greenhouse-gases are one of the biggest environmental problems. One possibility of minimizing the greenhouse effect is
the storage and long time trapping of CO2 in geological formations. The unminable coal-seams in closed coal-mines are
the attractive geological formations for the sequestration of CO2. The CO2-Adsorption into coal seams results in
simultaneous desorption of methane ( Enhanced Coalbed Methane - ECBM ). By utilizing methane the cost of
CO2-Sequestration can be reduced.
The objective of the research project :
Development of physical-mathematical model approaches for the CO2-Adsorption into coal seams and simultaneous desorption
of methane (CH4) .
Implementation of these approaches into the numerical multi-phase simulator MUFTE-UG
