Close to 100 MISK devoted to the DRG project
The science community, energy companies and Orkustofnun have agreed to devote about ISK 100 million to research on the interaction of water and magma in volcanic roots. To learn how this interaction occurs and how heat is transferred from the magma into the geothermal systems is key to acquiring a deeper understanding of the rational utilization of geothermal energy.
Seminar series on treatment and utilization of discharge from Geothermal utilization
GEORG has organized a seminar series on treatment and utilization of discharge from geothermal Power Plants. The first seminar of five will be held on Wedneday, April 3rd @ the University of Iceland.
The objective of the seminar is to discuss the status of treatment and utilization of discharge from geothermal Power Plants and explore possible opportunities of cooperation on research projects within GEORG with the aim to reducing environmental impact and convert waste to value.
At this first seminar Sigurður Magnús Garðarsson will introduce the seminar series as well as lightly inform guest on the research in this field. Bjarni Már Júlíusson will talk about the cooperation between the energy companies on H2S emissions from geothermal power plants and the preparation for the approaching stricter regulation on H2S discharge. Finally Auður Andrésdóttir will discuss the environmental impact of exhaust and warm water discharge of geothermal power plants.
