The aim of the study is to estimate the theoretical capacity of coal deposits in terms of carbon dioxide storage and methane recovery estimate during the injection of carbon dioxide. The Multiple Sorption Model was used for this purpose. The range of sorption measurement data on which the simulations were based does not exceed the critical point for both methane and carbon dioxide. The model allows to calculate absorption, adsorption, expansion and total theoretical sorption. For further consideration absorption was used as the process of the percolation of the gas in the bulk of the coal matter as well as the total theoretical sorption, the occurrence of which is possible due to the presence of fractures in the coal seam. Calculated levels of absorption and the total theoretical adsorption were applied to estimate the possible storage capacity of carbon dioxide based on the data associated with the content of coal in the mining fields of individual Polish coal mines. Moreover, MSM development for the gas mixture sorption can be used to roughly assess the recovery of methane naturally occurring in coal deposits during such a process.
