Project: Hydro-geological study for North Algerian hot springs

Abstract:
Algerian hot springs are very important and they are ranking in low enthalpy.
The project includes geological work for updating the geological data around the hot springs, the map was the geothermal gradient and updating of chemical and isotopic analyzes of the main hot springs of Northern Algeria.

Objectives:
Establishment of an Atlas of geothermal resources of North Algerian with updated geological data around thermal springs.
Expertise and technical assistance for public projects that fall within the field of low enthalpy in Algeria.
Giving adequate and effective instruments to the local authorities in hydrothermal touristic industry management.

  • Abstract: This project is to determine a methodology for the design of an air conditioning system (heating and cooling) of a habitat by geothermal energy. This system must be technically feasible and reliable. Thus, it comes to designing a thermodynamic machine which generates the cold from a (...)
