Large Hadron Collider will begin to heat the house (4 photos)

Giant Science Object, Large HadronCollider (BAC), worked for a long time to solve scientific problems and assisted in making numerous discoveries. However, the European Council on Nuclear Research (CERN) decided to study the possibility of using the LHC to solve practical urgent problems.

In the near future, a collider could become a source of heat for nearby houses. A huge amount of thermal energy generated by the LHC will be used directly for the benefit of others.

The LHC is required to work very low.temperature close to absolute zero. Therefore, in the process of launching the collider, a huge amount of thermal energy is generated, the utilization of which will reduce the cost of scientific research. Part of this energy can be directed to the Fernet-Voltaire zone under construction (ZAC) adjacent to the collider, where it is planned to open a geothermal power station. The excess heat generated by industrial buildings, the cooling system of the TANK and solar energy will be supplied to the water heating in the underground water supply system. Part of the heated water will be directed to the heating of buildings and structures.

The cooling system of the collider will supplyheated water to point 8 of the LHC and redirected to the geothermal system ZAC. Thus, for 8,000 local residents, heating costs will decrease, and the environment will also improve. The first test tests of BAK heat recovery for heating buildings will begin in 2021, and the system will work fully by 2022.
