Tapping Geothermal Energy: New Drilling Method With Fire And Flame In The Depth

Saturday, September 12, 2009 - 14:35 in Mathematics & Economics

With increasing depth, geothermal energy offers an almost inexhaustible potential for renewable energy. The drilling costs however, rise exponentially with depth in the case of conventional rotary drilling. A thermal drilling method, which will allow for reaching greater drilling depths in a more efficient and more cost-effective way, is currently under development.
