Maximilian Schulze from the University of Cologne’s Institute of Geology and Mineralogy will present on the GEOPRO Project at the European Geothermal Congress 2022 (EGC 2022).
The Congress is taking place in Berlin from 17-21 October 2022, providing a stage to discuss new developments in the science, technology, industry, and policy of geothermal energy.
Maximilian will present on, ‘Understanding Properties of Superhot Fluids for Exploration and Development of Supercritical Resources’ on Thursday 20 October.
An understanding of superhot fluids is critical to model the potential and causes of scaling and corrosion as well as to model efficient and safe reservoir engineering and operation.
The presentation will demonstrate how a combination of experimental and numerical thermodynamic modelling will be incorporated into simulations tools for flow assurance, reservoir modelling, geochemical modelling and reactive transport.
The European Geothermal Congress is held every three years and is Europe’s largest congress dedicated to the geothermal sector, attracting people from Europe and outside. Including a range of events such as policy and scientific sessions, an exhibition, training courses, science bars, site visits, and networking events, EGC 2022 brings together the academic, industrial and societal aspects of the geothermal sector.
The GEOPRO project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 851816
