The Project - Evolutions


The THERMODDEM database has evolved and now intends to cover fields beyond waste materials only.

The database can also apply to:
 - Underground disposals (e.g. Marty et al. 2015 ; Gaucher et al. 2009)
 - Water quality (Humez et al., 2013)
 - Geothermal energy (Castillo et al. 2015 ; Ngo et al. 2016)
 - Acid mine drainage ; Mining impacts (Pedretti et al. 2015 ; Liakopoulos et al. 2010)
 - Cementitious material degradation (Soive et al. 2016).

The selection of aqueous, mineral and gases has been periodically updated (now including Fe, Ni, As, Hg). Cement material were added, together with clay minerals and zeolites.

The transfer of information from the management tool to the web site was simplified and improved (XML based exchange files).

Kinetic rate laws, surface complexation and cation exchange reactions have been added, consistently with the main body of thermodynamic data to extend the range of applications.

The Thermoddem database can also be used for:
 - dealing with contexts out of the H2O L-V conditions, including capillary systems that take place in unsaturated porous media (Thermo-ZNS, Lassin et al. 2005).
 - achieving consistency (continuum) with saline systems (Blanc et al. 2012).
