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".
If the previous “Visioning Workshop” of the CHPM2030 Project was dedicated to the description of "where to go" in terms of targets to reach, the recent “Roadmapping Workshop” headed to a more specific task regarding "how to get there" by considering actions and...read more
