SERENGEO Srl, a spin-off company of the University of Bologna, located at the Department of Civil, Chemical, Environmental and Materials Engineering (DICAM), is an innovative startup which provides consulting and design services, advanced scientific studies, physics-mechanical determinations by in situ and laboratory tests in the Geoengineering field. SERENGEO activities are based on the most advanced technical-scientific know-how, developed at the University, collaborating with public and private, Italian and foreign research institutes in the development and application of innovative solutions in the fields of mining and environmental engineering, tunnelling and safety, rock mechanics and geothermal energy.
Our mission is to transfer our experience, know-how and skills to the market in order to improve the knowledge of the underground space and to foster the sustainable interaction between man and nature.
PhD in Georesources Engineering of University of Bologna and Instituto Superior Técnico of Lisbon, with a thesis on the numerical modeling of shallow geothermal reservoirs. Environmental engineer, works on the shallow geothermal energy since 2009 and she teaches in the area of Petroleum Engineering both in Lisbon and Luanda. She is responsible for communication and marketing of SERENGEO and of the projects related to shallow geothermal energy.
PhD in Georesources Engineering and Environmental Engineer, since 2004 carries out applied research projects about sustainable mining, functional reclamation of active and abandoned mines and quarries and environmental impact assessment. Since 2008 he’s working on numerical modeling of geothermal reservoirs, and is the leading developer of TOUGH2GIS, a pre-processing software for the numerical code TOUGH2.
PhD in Georesources Engineering (University of Bologna) after a Master Degree in Environmental Engineering. Since 2006 she has carried out experimental research on rock mechanics and excavation engineering. The main research topic deals with rock materials characterization through destructive and nondestructive tests. Moreover, she has been involved in a research project focused on rehabilitation of Italian abandoned mines.
Ex Full Professor at DICAM department of the University of Bologna, his activity is focused on excavation engineering and safety, for mining and civil infrastructures. Research studies aim at the characterization of rocks and rock masses, at developing innovative methods and techniques for minerals extraction and for production of geothermal fluids, and at establishing safer systems and procedures for underground excavation.
Associate Professor at the DICAM department of the University of Bologna. His main research field concerns fluid in porous media. Since many years, he devotes part of his research activity to developing tools and methodology dedicated to the modeling and simulation of georesources.
PhD in Georesources and Geotechnology, Environmental Engineer, since 2004 carries out applied research for reservoir characterization. Since 2008 he’s working on numerical modeling of geothermal reservoirs, and is the leading developer of TOUGH2Viewer, a post-processing software for the numerical code TOUGH2.
Environmental Engineer, PhD in Georesources Engineering, since 2007 works in the field of shallow geothermal energy for heating and cooling applications. Since 2016 he works as researcher in the framework of International Cooperation and Research Projects.
Geologist and petrophysicist, technical manager of Lagirn Laboratory of DICAM (University of Bologna) since 2001.
