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".
One of the project’s latest achievements is a report on pilots compiled by La Palma Research Centre which presents an evaluation framework that facilitates the investigation of potential study areas for CHPM technology. The same methodology was applied to five...read more
