  • Geothermal Energy... Power from the Depths

    The Earth's crust is a bountiful source of energy—and fossil fuels are only part of the story. Heat or thermal energy is by far the more abundant resource. To put it in perspective, the thermal energy in the uppermost six miles of the Earth's crust amounts to 50,000 times the energy of all oil and gas resources in the world! The word 'geothermal' literally means 'Earth' plus 'heat.' ...

  • Design of method and mechanism for geothermal energy extraction

    By drilling using a specially designed hydride carbide (melting point: 1,365°C) drill, we can drill the earth's crust to about 5 to 40 km to reach temperatures of 700 to 1,000°C, with minimum cost of the drill and drilling technology. Further, we can extract energy by pouring in water on an inserted carbide alloy vessel into the drilled well and bringing out as steam to drive the turbines. By ...

    GeoSmart Energy has acquired a time-saving multi-loop and pump handler designed for geothermal drilling. The GeoSmart Push'N Pull simplifies the installation of geothermal pipes in vertical drill applications, saving time, money and manual labour. "Geothermal drillers will appreciate its'push'factor for inserting pipe while water well drillers will love its 'pull' factor for extracting pumps ...

  • Fossil Fuel Development in the Arctic is a Bad Investment

    Even master chess players can miss a great move when they have been primed to look for a different one. To explore this phenomenon, researchers tracked master chess players’ eye movements when given chessboards with different layouts. With the first board, players could reach checkmate using a familiar move. When given the second chessboard, the players' eyes kept looking at the pieces ...
