RESPONSE – Reactive transport modelling of point source contamination in soils and groundwater

The RESPONSE project deals with the transport of point source contaminants in soils and groundwater. Point source contaminations result from historical or current activities and constitute a variety in forms, areas and contaminants involved (e.g. landfills, industrial facilities, storage tanks, disposal of hazardous waste).

GEPATAR: GEotechnical and Patrimonial Archives Toolbox for ARchitectural conservation in Belgium

The GEPATAR project started in September 2014 for a duration of four years and is funded by the BRAIN-be research programme of BELSPO. Aim of the project is to improve the management of built heritage in Belgium by integrating data from the archives of RBINS and RICH and by assessing the stability of monuments using radar interferometry.

H3O – The Campine

The general scope of this project is to solve existing connection problems between the Flemish and Dutch geological and hydrogeological layer cake models in the Campine Region by producing cross-border, up-to-date, three-dimensional geological and hydrogeological models of the Cenozoic deposits, based on existing (hydro-) geological data.
01/01/2014 to 31/12/2015

BeTemper

The project aims to assess the shallow geothermal potential in Belgium through analysis of thermal properties of rocks from the surface to a depth of 150 m, which covers the standard depth for a vertical loop system currently installed in Belgium.
01/09/2010 to 31/08/2013

ThermoMap

The goal of the project is to map the potential of very shallow geothermal energy in Europe. Therefore, ThermoMap aims at fostering the subsoil information in order to develop shallow geothermal systems across Europe.

PSS-CCS: Policy Support System for Carbon Capture and Storage

While Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) seems to be a viable option from a technical, geological and economic point of view, the critical question that remains is how and at which cost CCS can be implemented at a large scale in the near future.

Characterisation of hypersiliceous rocks from Belgium

In this research, outcrops of hypersiliceous rocks, ranging form Cambrium to Tertiary in age, are being mapped. The inter- and intravariability within one outcrop and between different outcrops is being studied by a multidisciplinary approach (petrography, spectrometry and diffractometry).
16/10/2002 to 16/10/2004

Tertiary isohypse-maps

By using the available geological datas (drillings, exposures, seismic profiles, geophysical logs...) isohypse-maps will be created at the base of each tertiary formations in Flanders and Walloon-Brabant. Using all exposures and drillings datas, extracted from the archives of the GSB (Geological Survey of Belgium), DOV (underground databank of...
