The non-retarded van der Waals and Casimir-Polder forces on a CO2 molecule in water near a single surface and between surfaces are explored. We observe preferential adsorption and desorption of CO2 molecules depending on the material of the surfaces. We also find a potential mechanism of capture and storage of CO2 molecules in a geometry consisting of a cellulose surface coated by a thin film of water and then by air.
