Material limits of the energy transition: Thanatia
With each passing year, the quantity and variety of mineral resources being extracted increases. All technologies require large quantities of raw materials, some of which are in very short supply. On a planet with limited resources, will there be enough to meet the demand of the world's population? Studying the consequences of excessive resource consumption through geology, mining and thermodynamics is key to trying to prevent Gaia from becoming Thanatia, a planet depleted of resources.
In conversation with Elisabet Roselló. * This session will be conducted in Spanish. It won't be streamed.
