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 on the right tracks, and it is going fast! The H2020 project working on decreasing Europe's dependency on the import of strategic metallic minerals and energy by coupling the production of geothermal energy and metals is indeed making huge...read more
Joint Efforts to Strengthen Geothermal Energy Press release, Zurich, 7 July 2017 Geothermal heat is a promising source to enrich and significantly contribute to the renewable energy mix in a long-term perspective. To foster the use of geothermal energy in a secure,...read more
The CHPM2030 project is defining a technology pathway that could substantially decrease Europe’s dependency on both the import of critical metallic minerals and of energy. The project aims at new concepts coupling the production of geothermal energy and metals and...read more
