REFLECT

Redefining geothermal fluid properties at extreme conditions

Creating a common and public Fluid Atlas

The Fluid Atlas will provide information on geothermal fluid properties across Europe. It will be public and available to all geothermal operators and stakeholders.

Reducing maintenance costs

REFLECT will improve predictions of chemical reactions to help operators find solutions for the design of power plants and avoid typical problems causing maintenance costs and downtimes.

Reducing environmental impact

By improving knowledge of free gas formation during fluid production (e.g. greenhouse gas), the destruction of plant materials by corrosion and the formation of radioactive deposits can be avoided.
The efficiency of geothermal utilisation depends on the behaviour of fluids that transfer heat between the geosphere and the engineered components of a power plant.
