Georesources

Entgasung der Erde

 

Georesources constitute the basis of life in any society and of the steadily increasing world population. They comprise the classic environmental compartments, such as soil, water, and the deep underground serving as a rich reservoir of raw materials (ore minerals for metal production, industrial minerals, stone and earth for the building industry, hydrocarbons). One of the major future challenges lies in the need for us to handle these vital georesources in a responsible and sustainable way so that also the next generations can satisfy their needs. Evaluating the interaction between using and protecting resources and the development of efficient technologies of use are focal points in georesource research at the KIT.
