Numerical simulation using TOUGHREACT software has shown that more than 20Mt of CO2can be stored for a period up to 10,000 years in a 2-D model system taking from the geology of the Tokyo Bay area. Carbonate precipitation occurs extensively in the front of enlarging plume, forming a shell enclosing CO2. The distribution of dawsonite is predicted to be dependent on the dissolution of plagioclase which presents abundantly in sandstones of the Tokyo Bay area as well as those in young sedimentary strata of Japanese Islands, suggesting its potential importance in the mineral trapping of CO2. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
