Direct integration of solar steam into fossil steam generator
In the project SolSteam the Institute of Solar Research develops and investigates concepts for the direct integration of solar steam into industrial steam systems in collaboration with its partner Industrial Solar.
Numerous thermal processes in the food and beverage industry, chemical industry and many other industries are operated with steam as heat transfer medium. Solar heat can be fed into the existing steam distribution system in order to reduce the conventional firing.
Currently a new concept for the integration of solar steam is being tested at the production site of RAMPharma in Amman. This video gives an impression of the linear Fresnel collector that is used for those tests.
