SolFood - Solarwärme für die Ernährungsindustrie

Short description

Process heat generation is a new application for solar thermal systems which has a large potential. The introduction of this technology is rather slow due to a low awareness in industry and a high effort for planning. Within the SolFood project, planning guidelines will be developed to facilitate the choice of an integration point and preliminary design of a solar thermal system for process heat generation. Several case studies in different branches of the food sector will be done within the project to apply the planning guidelines and raise the awareness for solar process heat. Companies from the following branches can take part in the project: Dairies, Meat industry, Fruits and vegetables, Confectionaries , Mineral water and soft drinks.
