Solar Process Steam

Although electricity generation is the primary concern, the Fresnel collector can accommodate several other applications. The process steam, which is normally used for electricity generation, can instead be used for a number of industrial purposes.  

Numerous industries and industrial processes not only require but in fact rely on process steam: the food industry and textile industry, water treatment, metal and plastics treatment, pulp and paper manufacturing, the chemical and petrochemical industry – to name only few. They all rely on high-temperature steam for their production and operations.

The environmental impact of the conventional generation of process steam is considerable and the costs for fossil fuel-based generation substantial.
