Considering the Getica project, and the feasibility study prepared in 2011 in order to capture and storage CO2 from the Turceni Power Plant and in view of the temporary cessation of this project, we propose a study on the storage of CO2 in disused and closed mining areas, from the Jiu Valley, with impact on the environment and on exploitation and monitoring for long-term more than 1000 years and also alignment with similar projects in other countries, Europeans or not. Mainly, the majority of long-term capture and storage projects are carried out in deepwater aquifers, such as aquifers under the North Sea and the Barents Sea, or specially storage projects created in dissolutted salt mines, such as those in the Santos Basin in the Atlantic Ocean in Brazil, as well as others, like the pilot projects in India, with storage in volcanic rocks, etc. Storage projects in large-capacity coal mines such as those in Romania, Serbia or Bulgaria, to discuss common issues with neighboring countries, can create an exchange of knowledge with those countries on long and very long-term storage of CO2 in coal mines, with an obvious gain in greening the atmosphere and in the health of the environment.
