Hydrogeochemistry and environmental properties of geothermal fields. case study: Balçova, Izmir-Turkey
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-02)
Balcova Geothermal Field hosts the largest geothermal district heating system of Turkey and a number of shallow groundwater wells that are used for irrigation of the agricultural activities. The present study aims to assess ...
Hydrogeological properties of hyper-saline geothermal brine and application of inhibiting siliceous scale via pH modification
Scaling is a major obstacle in harnessing of geothermal energy from the geothermal resources. This paper presents a case study for inhibition of metal silicate scaling using formic acid, harvesting more energy in particular ...
Types of the scaling in hyper saline geothermal system in northwest Turkey
Tuzla is an active geothermal area located in northwestern Turkey, 80km south of the city of Canakkale and 5km from the Aegean Coast. The geothermal brine from this area, which is dominated by NaCl, has a typical temperature ...
Experimental modeling of silicate-based geothermal deposits
Scaling by metal silicates represents a major obstacle for geothermal systems. A composition that enables the fabrication of artificial deposits is necessary for the rapid testing of potential inhibitors. In this work, ...
