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".
CHPM2030 is glad to release its new video. Discover now a detailed overview about the project activities & how the project is developing a novel technology that will combine geothermal energy production with metals extraction from the geothermal fluid in a single...read more
LPRC recently organised the CHPM2030 Visioning Workshop in Las Palmas. The participants were selected from both Consortium members, external research centres and companies from the geothermal and mineral sector. The workshop is part of the project’s forward looking...read more
The Raw Materials Week is organised each year in Brussels to debate about the importance of the mineral raw materials supply for the European Union. Organised by the European Commission between the 12th and the 16th of November, it gathers the European raw materials...read more
