BrineRIS Autumn School is behind us!

The BrineRIS Autumn School in Karlsruhe, organized by Vulcan Energy Subsurface Solutions, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, and the University of Miskolc, became a history!
Between November 20-24, ten awarded students participated in lectures, practical exercises, laboratory visits, and field trips. The students gained substantive knowledge in exploring prospective geothermal deposits, direct lithium extraction methods, geothermal energy and power plants, drilling, and more. The classes were led by international experts who provided theoretical and practical knowledge. During the field trip, participants visited the Insheim Geothermal Power Plant and DLE pilot installation, and the newly opened, the first in Europe Lithium Extraction Plant in Landau. There was also time to touch some geology in the field and to visit the modern laboratories of Vulcan Energy Group, where their patented sorbent is produced and tested.
We are grateful to Vulcan Energy Resources, Vulcan Energy Resources Deutschland, and Vulcan Energy Subsurface Solutions for their hospitality and the opportunity to visit such unique facilities. We thank all the organizers for a great event filled with valuable knowledge. We want to express our special gratitude to Dr. Jens Grimmer for perfect coordination and for caring for the group.
The interest in the school was so high (72 applications from 24 countries) that we are already thinking about new possibilities for the next edition of the BrineRIS Autumn School!
