Rébénacq: they will map the natural hydrogen present in the town

Among these five students, Keanu Loiseau is in 3e year of thesis as part of the evaluation of the natural hydrogen potential in New Aquitaine (H2NA project), Niko Adjie will start his thesis on the characterization of natural hydrogen emanations, and three undergraduate students in Earth Sciences from UPPA, Justin Faget, Quentin Betton and Romain Vidal are doing a one-month internship on this exploration project.

At the center of a rich geological drainage system

This involves establishing a detailed map of natural hydrogen emissions around the town of Rébénacq. The mayor of this town is in fact very interested in evaluating all non-carbon energy sources, such as hydroelectricity, solar, and therefore natural hydrogen.

The western Pyrenees are at the heart of an intense investigation of this promising gas and in this context, Rébénacq, very little explored, is at the center of a rich geological drainage system whose potential must be estimated.

This type of study, requested by a municipality, could serve as a pilot study on this scale of investigation.

The three students Romain, Justin and Quentin will therefore survey the terrain of Rebénacq for several weeks and measure the hydrogen emanations which can reach a concentration of around 0.1% at most. The first results are promising.
