GreenFire Energy is working in the Real AZ Corridor (St. Johns) to develop processes that will enable it to become the first company in the world to produce electric power at commercial scale using geothermally heated CO2.
The potential is enormous, given the capacity of Real AZ Corridor soils to store CO2 … and the availability of emissions from the Corridor’s expanding energy industry. CO2 is also a food source for algae, another high potential sector in the Corridor.
Geothermal is one of the renewable/alternative energy sectors that are emerging — quickly — in Navajo and Apache counties. There’s a lot to be excited about in the Real AZ Corridor … and geothermal energy production is part of that.

‘Imagine a clean, renewable energy source that can greatly increase the amount of baseload power while having a positive impact on CO2 emissions and the environment. That energy source is CO2- based geothermal power. GreenFire Energy is working to develop and harness this power, creating a suite of geothermal technologies which we call CO2ETM.
We have combined an unrivaled, multidisciplinary R&D program with a viable, realistic business strategy. GreenFire is currently developing innovative and patentable technologies to accomplish this goal.
GreenFire’s Technology Approach is carefully measured, constantly focusing on the realistic challenges associated with scale-up to commercial production, rather than merely focusing on successful lab-scale technology itself.’
