CO2 storage potential of Poland is presented in relation to country emissions and possible future demands of country energy industry in case CO2 geological storage is assumed as a viable option on CO2 emission reduction in not too distant future. The study presents results of PBG's work in EU FP6 CASTOR WP1.2 and EU GeoCapacity projects. Major industrial emission sources in the country are characterised. Storage capacities in case of aquifers, hydrocarbon fields and coal fields are presented and discussed. Storages and related formations are mapped in order to match them with CO2 industrial sources. Possible industrial applications of all three storage options are discussed. In the most pesismistic scenario the storage potential is sufficient for thirty-forty year present day emissions of power and CHP plants in Poland.
