- How can we combine renewable energy production with reducing the carbon footprint of industrial processes that are a source of CO2 emissions?
- What is the potential of the Centre-Val de Loire region for implementing innovative technologies to combine CO2 storage with geothermal energy production?
Christophe Kervévan, a BRGM scientist, will answer these questions during a free online presentation hosted by Centre Sciences as part of Science Tuesdays.

Why not use the storage of CO2 emissions from industrial sources to heat our homes?
To address the climate change emergency due to the increase in greenhouse gas emissions, the capture and storage of CO2 from industrial sources in deep reservoirs is an option identified as unavoidable by IPPC experts.
For more than 7 years, BRGM and its partners have been working on a new approach to combine CO2 storage in deep reservoirs with geothermal energy production.
The GEOCO2 project is co-financed by the Centre-Val de Loire region and aims to quantify the regional potential for implementing this innovative technology. The presentation will describe its main features and the first findings of the regional inventory currently under way.
