We have been showcased @CORDIS_EU

Our project aiming to increase the use of solar heat in industrial processes has been featured at cordis.europa.eu, the European Commission’s primary source of results, news, and information on EU-funded research projects. The article shows how we are boosting the concept on the cheap and easy-to-install linear Fresnel system, which basically consists of many mirrors in parallel rows, that imitate a large Fresnel Lens, to augment solar energy acquisition. This concentrated solar power system (CSP) is coupled with tailor-made hybrid heat pumps (HHPs) that enable “both industrial heating and cooling powered by the sun” as our project coordinator, Silvia Jané, has explained.
Quoting the article:
“At the Spanish production site of consortium partner Givaudan, a flavors and fragrances company, the HyCool concept has been applied to several processes with either heating or cooling needs. Givaudan’s current cold installation makes use of a glycolic water chiller to keep the water entering the liquid ring of the vacuum pumps at 7 °C, with a thermal demand of 125.5kW. ”For the use cases considered, the electrical consumption of the compression chiller will be reduced by 29 % (spring) and 44 % (summer), respectively, by using HyCool technology,” says Jané This efficiency gain is even higher if compared to common refrigeration systems”.
We are advancing this technology and systems to promote energy efficiency for industries.
