Biogel

Title: Nanotechnologies for sustainable valorisation of the national energy potential (geothermal and hydrocarbon feedstock) - BIOGEL

ICCOM Principal Investigator: Elisa Passaglia

Project Type: National - Tuscany Region

Duration: 01/04/2016-31/01/2018

Abstract: The BioGel project aims to propose the use, innovative for the geothermal sector, of nanostructured and/or functional polymeric materials, which are biodegradable, eco-compatible and that allow to reduce the amount of chemical agents introduced into the soil during the drilling and production phases of the oil well. The biodegradability of the materials used guarantees a low long-term environmental impact unlike what has been used up to now in the geothermal sector
