Exploitation des eaux minérales carbo-gazeuses
Exploitation of carbonated mineral waters
ANTEA, groupe BRGM, Direction de l'eau
The particular chemistry of these waters, which are naturally highly unstable, means that special exploitation processes are necessary. Detailed study of their thermodynamic and geochemical behaviour involving measurement, analysis, additional research and modelling provides the essential data for designing the systems needed for production, transport, treatment, storage and bottling.
Following some general remarks on these resources, the theoretical and practical implications of these natural constraints are described, indicating the 2-phase aspects of the flow patterns and the necessary control of the resources, the gas and the appropriate treatments.
The case of Montrond-les-Bains is described at the end of the paper.
