Technology Description:

New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology is developing subsurface engineering approaches for geologic hydrogen reservoir management, including ways to mitigate the risk of induced seismicity and hydrogen leakage. In addition to conducting laboratory experiments to explore hydrogen generation rates and transport using steam, the team will test methods to minimize rock volume expansion and to identify ecological indicators of hydrogen leakage. These technologies could predict, model, and prevent harmful side effects associated with enhanced stimulation of hydrogen generating mineralogical processes.
