The EU-funded CHPM2030 research project aiming to develop a technology solution that can help satisfy the European needs for energy and strategic metals in a single interlinked process has released an informative video on its work packages.

European research project CHPM2030 has released a video overview on the different work packages contributing to the project.

CHPM2030 is a 42-months H2020 project funded by the European Commission that started on 1 January 2016. 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.

Working at the frontiers of geothermal resources development, minerals extraction and electro-metallurgy the project aims at converting ultra-deep metallic mineral formations into an “orebody-Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS)” that will serve as a basis for the development of a new type of facility for “Combined Heat, Power and Metal extraction” (CHPM). In the technology envisioned the metal-bearing geological formation will be manipulated in a way that the co-production of energy and metals will be possible, and may be optimised according to the market demands at any given moment in the future.
