HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

Concentrated solar power (CSP) systems use large arrays of mirrors or lenses to concentrate sunlight onto a small fixed point. The heat from this fixed point is then transferred to a conventional steam generator for conversion into electricity. A team of SwRI chemists in collaboration with a client developed a novel encapsulation formulation of a high-temperature phase change salt for use in a single tank CSP thermal storage system.
