on behalf of the convenors I would like to draw your attention to the session 9b "Geothermal and Mineral Resources – Perspectives for Large-Scale Research" at the upcoming GeoBonn meeting (Bonn, Germany, 2-6 September 2018). The session description is given below.
Please note that the deadline for abstract submission is Tuesday, May 15th.
This session will address the recovering of heat and minerals from geothermal brines. Studies can include research on different scales, from laboratory to real field scale. Necessities for large infrastructures are emphasized for geothermal heat production as the most significant resource in the energy market (heating and cooling accounts for 50% of the EU’s energy consumption). Furthermore, geothermal mining of the mineral-rich fluids presents a potential driver for more economical geothermal projects. Contributions addressing the geologic origin or pathways of mineral resources being favourable for future extractions are welcomed as well as economic and data analyses of geothermal projects.
