June 14 @ 8:00 am - June 15 @ 5:00 pm
AVENIA organizes the GEODAYS, an international business convention gathering subsurface stakeholders. The 2022 edition will take place on June 14th & 15th at the Palais Beaumont in Pau. We are delighted to meet again around new subjects which matter to all of us. A rich program: 2 days of B2B meetings, Open Innovation, conferences and thematic sessions, punctuated by times of exchanges and discoveries.
Context: the subsurface role in the energy transition
The current context of the energy transition – implemented to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and limit the climate change effects – requires the review of our methods of production of raw materials and the improvement of the socio-environmental cost of the production of consumption goods. Within this framework, the subsurface industries must play a leading role on:
– The improvement of energy efficiency and the reduction in water consumption in industrial processes:
– The relocation and securing of the supply in metals, which are exploited, transformed and imported from the other side of the world. There is a need to support local productions of industrial minerals and metals to develop the technologies of the future.
– The decarbonation of industrial processes with the deployment of low carbon energies (H2, nuclear, geothermal energy, hydroelectricity, EnRi) and CO2 geological storage.
On the other hand, the climate change and the temperature rise by 2020-2030, will trigger changes in rainfall, provoking impacts on groundwater recharge, soil & subsurface stability; and consequently, on land uses & infrastructure monitoring.
