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".
On 12th April 2018, the European Federation of Geologists (EFG) and La Palma Research Centre (LPRC) organised an Orientation Workshop for 17 of the EFG’s National Associations that are involved in the CHPM2030 project as Linked Third Parties (LTPs). 11 of EFG’s LTPs...read more
The CHPM2030 project consortium partners met in Lanzarote, Spain, on 21st and 22nd March to discuss the achievements of the project and to plan the future steps. The sessions of the meeting were structured around the work packages and aimed to share and explain the...read more
The successful social media campaign #CHPM4EU ended this month. The aim of the campaign was to inform general public and stakeholders about the disruptive technology the project plans to develop: a technology combining metal extraction and renewable energy generation....read more
