Non-electric utilization of geothermal energy in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. Second quarterly progress report, May 1-August 31, 1977

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objectives of this project are to develop an initial quantification of the magnitude of low-temperature geothermal resources in the San Luis Valley area of south-central Colorado, and to analyze the engineering and economic factors pertinent to the non-electric utilization of these resources. The industrial applications being evaluated are the supply of heat and process water from the geothermal source for the malting of barley for beer production, and for the refining of sugar from beets. Also under consideration is the augmentation of municipal water supplies in some cities in the southern region of Colorado, with the possibility that some ... continued below

Description

The objectives of this project are to develop an initial quantification of the magnitude of low-temperature geothermal resources in the San Luis Valley area of south-central Colorado, and to analyze the engineering and economic factors pertinent to the non-electric utilization of these resources. The industrial applications being evaluated are the supply of heat and process water from the geothermal source for the malting of barley for beer production, and for the refining of sugar from beets. Also under consideration is the augmentation of municipal water supplies in some cities in the southern region of Colorado, with the possibility that some space heating may be accomplished before consumption of the water, itself. A review of the potential size of the resource in the San Luis Valley has been completed and is included. Several process flow options for using low-temperature brine to supply heat to a beet sugar refinery are being studied. One option is presented here in detail, and calculations for more efficient processes are underway.
