Borexino experiment is a 280-ton liquid scintillator detector located at a 3800 m w.e. depth in the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (Italy). Borexino is one of only two detectors in the world who have measured geoneutrinos, antineutrinos originating from the radioactive decays of long-lived isotopes naturally present in the crust and mantle. The new geoneutrino measurement, published in January 2020, features increased statistics and the new elaborate analysis. With this update, we have now been able to access 53 geoneutrino events – almost twice as many as in the result published by the collaboration in 2015. The improvements in the analysis and geological interpretations of the results will be discussed in the talk.
