A geothermal field covering an area of more than 70 square kilometers was found in the city of Bozhou, Anhui province on Wednesday, according to the provincial geological environment regulator.

By national standards, the field, which is expected to have a capacity of 77.88 megawatts of electricity, is recognized as a large-sized geothermal field. If it is fully exploited, the total amount of terrestrial heat will be equivalent of 8.27 million tonnes of coal, but only the former can reduce as many as 200,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide and other pollutants.

"The geothermal field is the first of its kind in the province and among the few in China," said Guan Yu, deputy director of the Anhui Geological Environment Monitoring Station.

The renewable and clean geothermal energy has been widely used for power generation, heating, bathing and industrial production. Covering an area of 140 square kilometers, the Geysers Geothermal Field in the United States is the world's biggest single geothermal field.
