The geothermal innovators of the year
This year on the 27th May 2020 the Ruggero Bertani European Geothermal Innovation Award 2020 was earned by the Icelandic Carbfix project and German company Eavor on equal merit.
The Carbfix process captures CO2 and other sour gases from emission sources, transforming them into rocks underground in less than two years. This overturns the common view that mineral storage in Carbon Capture & Storage projects takes hundreds to thousands of years. Carbfix has global scaling potential in and beyond the geothermal industry for decarbonising the economy.
The Ruggero Bertani European Geothermal Innovation Award is an initiative of EGEC, the European
Geothermal Energy Council, in collaboration with Messe Offenburg, organisers of the GeoTHERM fair and
congress. It is given to companies which have made an outstanding contribution towards the field of
geothermal energy in the form of innovative products, scientific research and project initiatives.
Carbfix is one of the fieldsites where S4CE deploys advanced instrumentation.
Congratulations to the Icelandic @CarbFix team for winning the 2020 European Geothermal Innovation Award #GeoInnAward2020! Great job capturing CO2 and transforming it into rocks underground in less than two years 👏 https://t.co/JrYdwyV0l0
