Geoscience & Engineering
It is our strong conviction that our research should contribute to:
Responsible Use of the Geosphere considering the Impact on System Earth and Society.
We define the geosphere to be that portion of system Earth that includes Earth's interior, rocks, minerals and soils, landforms and the processes that shape the Earth's surface. Responsible use includes the activities related to exploration, exploitation and mitigation of natural and man-induced geo-hazards.

Hydrogen Underground Storage
Hydrogen underground storage is a key element of the Delft Subsurface Storage Theme. Hydrogen production at North Sea, alone, is aimed to target 3-4GW power by 2030 and 10 GW by 2040. Hadi Hajibeygi has been interviewed recently about the role of geoscience in hydrogen energy sector, which was arranged by Delft Energy Institute. In this interview he addresses subsurface storage of hydrogen in salt caverns.
