Cleaning of soil gives energy

Students of the Utrecht School of Arts (HKU) provided the final presentation of their ideas to depict the combination of soil remediation and soil energy in the Utrecht city centre.

These concepts (Urban Heat Farming and Urban Heat Terrace) are visualized in the form of Aquifer Thermal Heat Storage (ATES) heated greenhouses and public seats which are heated or cooled with soil energy for local residents. This week they presented their work for alderman Mirjan de Rijk of Utrecht Municipality and members of international Interreg IVB NEW project CityChlor.

The reasons being are the construction of an ATES soil energy system in the Museum Quarter. The ATES installation in the Museum Quarter is part of a larger ATES soil energy system(the Utrecht Biowashing machine) that provides renewable energy to heat buildings in the city centre and simultaneously clean the soil. The ATES installation in the Museum Quarter shall also be used to investigate the effects of the combination of ATES and soil remediation.
