VITO applies geological and minewater modelling for creating computerized representations of the underground and the groundwater flow within. The resulting 3D geological and hydrogeological models are used for managing and quantifying natural resources. In particular, Minewater modelling supports  the drafting of mine abandonment plans and the development of new applications such as the use of flooded mines for geothermal energy production or storage.
