Digitalization of geohazards with Internet of Things
In the coming four years, the research project KlimaDigital aims to study the use of digital solutions to mitigate societal risks due to geohazards in a changing climate.
Electrophoresis to improve well construction?
Well construction in oil & gas and geothermal industries becomes increasingly complex and costly as the target depths increase. New ways to reduce costs and improve safety are therefore actively researched. Electrophoresis , a physicochemical effect known from the early 1800s, may help in reducing costs in drilling and well construction. In particular, it may facilitate cleaning of the equipment. It also may reduce energy consumption when drilling fluid and cement are pumped into the well.
“Urban mining” technology nominated for research prize
New technology will be used to recycle rare and valuable metals from waste materials such as electronic scrap and foundry slag. The process is profitable and may help to reduce environmentally harmful mining operations. The method is now in the final for the EU-research prize "Best early stage innovation 2018."
