Storage and sequestration of CO2 in subsurface has become a popular research topic in many fields of science and engineering. This is mostly due to anticipated environmental benefits but also thanks to a rich collection of associated models and problems that this idea provides. The talk will be expository and will give an overview of technologies and of mathematical and computational challenges that arise. The mathematical models relevant to CO2 sequestration include standard multiphase multicomponent flow and reactive transport, phase transitions, multiscale data, capillary and adsorption/desorption hysteresis, and coupling with poro-elasticity.
