Plasma drilling could unlock deep geothermal

From Superinnovators 02/02/24 Slovakia-based GA Drilling (f. 2008) is developing PLASMABIT, a drilling solution that uses a high-power rotating electric arc that produces 6000℃ plasma (ionised hot gas) to disintegrate any material without direct contact. The technology is designed to lower drilling costs and increase efficiency at greater depths up to 10km, enabling deep geothermal […]
