University of Texas at El Paso

Alma Energy and the University of Texas El Paso (UTEP) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on the Development of Direct Lithium Extraction Technology from Geothermal Brines.

We are pleased to announce a memorandum of understanding between Alma Energy and the University of Texas El Paso, on Direct Lithium Extraction (DLE) from brine that is produced from geothermal wells.

We are excited about the technology development as it focuses on a promising electrodialysis technology capable of economically efficient Lithium recovery at a minimum infrastructural footprint.

This strategic partnership will add an innovative technology for critical mineral extraction to our portfolio of dispatchable geothermal power production in energy super basins across the United States and elsewhere.

Geothermal Rising Conference

Alma Energy is proud to join the Texas Geothermal Energy Alliance!

The Texas Geothermal Energy Alliance (TXGEA) is a Texas-based, Texas-led advocacy organization created for the purpose of advancing Geothermal Energy in the state.

The Texas energy sector has benefitted tremendously from a diversified energy portfolio that has included oil, natural gas, wind, solar, coal, and nuclear power. 

Texas is also well-endowed by a huge potential in geothermal resources, due to favorable geothermal conditions and an ample infrastructure. Near term developments in geothermal resources can effectively contribute to decarbonize industries and residential heating or cooling, as well as to produce reliable and secure baseload electricity.  

Alma Energy is supportive in advocating geothermal energy for Texas, where we seek the development of a commercial geothermal power facility in a sedimentary basin.

Geothermal Rising Conference

Alma Energy plays an active role in the forthcoming Geothermal Rising Conference (GRC) to be held in Reno NV, August 28-31, 2022.

We want to bring to your attention the following technical session:

Geothermal Energy from Sedimentary Basins, Reservoir Management and Risk Mitigation 

Chaired by Hermann Lebit (Alma Energy) and Cindy Taff (Sage Geosystems)


Sedimentary basins offer tremendous potential for geothermal energy and build on prolonged records in geoscientific research and economic energy production. It resulted in a detailed understanding of the subsurface as exemplified by over 2 million well placements in the United States alone. An immense knowledge base and a wealth of data have been generated along with the development of a wide range of advanced upstream technologies and methodologies to explore and produce fluids from the subsurface.


The session intends to provide an arena for sub-surface professionals across industries to share and discuss technologies, workflows and best practices beneficial for the development of geothermal projects.
