Abstrakt

High-flux solar irradiation obtained with optical concentrators is an excellent source of clean process heat for high-temperature physical and chemical processing. Solar thermal power, the area that has traditionally driven developments in concentrating solar technologies, experiences renewed research interests, primarily in the context of large-scale dispatchable power generation. The area of solar thermochemistry aims at direct thermochemical production of chemical fuels and commodity materials. Cheap and efficient solar production of synthesis , the precursor to synthetic drop-in hydrocarbon fuels such as petrol, and kerosene, is an intriguing approach to transform today's fossil-based to tomorrow's renewable-based transportation sector. In the most ambitious scenario, synthesis is obtained from sunlight, water and captured carbon dioxide. This presentation gives an overview of recent developments in high-temperature solar thermal and thermochemical processing, from basic research to applications.
