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 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
Between 17-19 May, 2017, a EuroWorkshop on geothermal energy was organised by the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) and the Association of Greek Geologists (AGG) in Santorini, Greece. The CHPM2030 project was represented by four speakers. During three days,...read more
The third consortium meeting of the CHPM2030 project: all partners working together towards the same goal
The third CHPM2030 consortium meeting was held in Keyworth, Nottingham, on 28-29 March. During the two days, representatives of the project partners from different European countries discussed the latest updates on their work. They also planned the future steps that...read more
