Thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM)

What is a thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM)? One of the key challenges of ITER Project is to create thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM) suitable for horizontal collectors. The idea is improving the heat transfer of the ground surrounding the pipes used in very shallow geothermal systems (VSGS). Why? Since the VSGS performance depends on Read more about Thermally enhanced backfilling material (TEBM)[…]
