Utilising geothermal energy to power industrial sites
Janssen’s Beerse campus in Belgium is one of Johnson & Johnson’s largest campuses worldwide. In 2019, a geothermal energy project was started that involves drilling wells about 2.5 km deep, pumping up hot water from deep within the earth to generate heat for use on the property before returning it to the earth. With completion expected by Autumn 2021, the installation of this fourth-generation smart heat grid will cut 30% of CO2 emissions at that property and can save 15,900 metric tons of CO2 per year.
