CHPM2030 is an EU-funded H2020 project with the strategic objective to develop a novel technological solution that can help satisfy the needs for energy and strategic metals in a single interlinked process. In the CHPM technology vision, an enhanced geothermal system (EGS) will be established in a deep-seated (4 km or more) metal-bearing geological formation. By leaching metals from the mineralised rock body and recovering them at surface, the co-production of energy and metals will be possible and may even be optimised according to market demands.
