Absolicon T160 - A solar thermal concentrator providing heat and steam up to 160 C for industries and district heating, easy to mass-produce and install.

Heat is half of the final energy consumption and account for 40% of the CO2 emissions.

Many industrial processes consume large amount of heat. To make one kilo of textiles, two kilos of coal are used, to make one ton of tea, five tons of fire wood are burnt. Using the sun has heat source, it can be changed. The Absolicon T160 has a highever optical efficiency for a small parabolic trough (less than 2 m). Over 76% of the direct solar radiation is converted to heat. The collector is following the sun within a fraction of a degree. The result is heat and steam up to 160°C that can be used in industries, district heating or solar cooling.
