China's Landmark Extraction of Hot Dry Rock Could Accelerate Its Geothermal Energy Development

HDR, buried 3,000 to 10,000 meters underground, is a dense, impermeable, high temperature rock without water or steam. Through new geothermal energy, which operates at temperatures above 150 degrees Celsius, it can be widely used in power generation, heating and oil exploitation.

Scientists collect HDR under Earth’s surface

Zhang said that compared with the traditional hydrothermal and geothermal, the HDR is solid with higher temperature and rich energy content. "Moreover, the exploitation of HDR would not cause environmental hazards and will be hardly impacted by environmental factors."
