Geothermal Emission Control

Project description

Innovative technology for cleaner geothermal energy

Geothermal power plants emit CO2, which is a greenhouse gas. The EU-funded GECO project will apply innovative technology, recently developed and proved successful at a pilot level in Iceland, to limit the production of emissions from geothermal plants across Europe and the World and turn the emissions into commercial products. GECO will perform a detailed monitoring programme and geochemical analyses in four different geothermal systems (Iceland, Italy, Turkey and Germany). The aim is to create more accurate modelling tools to predict the reactions occurring in the subsurface in response to induced fluid flow. The project will advance gas capture and purification methods by reducing resource consumption to deliver cheaper usable CO2 streams to third parties.
