CHPM2030: Combined Heat, Power and Metal extraction
Deep geothermal energy
Low environmental impact
Extraction of geothermal energy helps to satisfy Europe’s energy needs. In this aspect, deep geothermal energy will be a key technology.
Mineral extraction from the geothermal fluid will decrease the import dependency of Europe and justify the economics of deep geothermal or EGS systems.
Geothermal energy production has a minimal effect on the environment. The additional close-circuit metal extraction will generate much less environmental impact than the traditional surface or underground mining.
"CHPM2030 aims to develop a novel and potentially disruptive technology solution that can help satisfy the European needs for energy and strategic metals in a single interlinked process".
The CHPM2030 project is working on a novel, potentially disruptive technology that combines geothermal energy and mineral extraction in a single interlinked process: Combined Heat, Power and Metal extraction, or in short CHPM. This technology aims to increase...read more
On 19th June 2018, three members of the CHPM2030 Team participated in the Annual Conference of the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Deep Geothermal (ETIP-DG) that took place in Brussels. The ETIP-DG is an open stakeholder group with the objective to...read more
