Iceland harnesses volcanic power for export

Hopes that geothermal project will boost country’s struggling economy.

It has been more than a year since a volcano in Iceland grounded flights across Europe.

The project would cost billions of dollars, but with oil prices spiralling ever higher, it could boost Iceland’s struggling economy.
