Featured article: Experimental study on the effect of CO2 storage on the reservoir permeability in a CO2-based enhanced geothermal system

A CO2-based Enhanced Geothermal System (CO2-EGS) has dual benefits of heat extraction and CO2 storage, but mineralization within the fractures reduce permeability and thus the productivity of the reservoir. Read here about how Li et al. find a solution to this challenge using proppants in their recent study.

Aims and scope

Geothermal Energy – Science, Society and Technology focuses on fundamental and applied research needed to deploy technologies for developing and integrating geothermal energy as one key element in the future energy portfolio. Contributions include geological, geophysical, and geochemical studies, exploration of geothermal fields, reservoir characterization and modeling, development of productivity-enhancing methods, and approaches to achieve robust and economic plant operation. Geothermal EnergyScience, Society and Technology serves to examine the interaction of individual system components while taking the whole process into account, from the development of the reservoir to the economic provision of geothermal energy.
