Corrosion and scaling in utilization of geothermal energy in the Upper Rhine graben

Mundhenk, Niklas

Corrosion and scaling are two obstructive processes that occur in geothermal industry as a consequence of the chemical characteristics of the geothermal fluid. Here, an experimental approach was chosen to understand the reactions on the material/fluid interface. In-situ and laboratory experiments reveal various types of corrosion phenomena and scale minerals. The outcome of this works establishes a better understanding of the processes that govern the resistance of the materials.
