The Use of Concentrated Solar Radiation in Upgrading Fossil Fuels
Renewable and Sustainable Energy
A special lecture will be held on Thursday, 2 September 2010 at 10:00 in Room M306, Mechanical Engineering Building, Stellenbosch University.
Dr Christiaan Sattler from the DLR (Institute of Technical Thermodynamics, Germany) will talk about the use of concentrated solar radiation in upgrading fossil fuels. He will also touch on the carbon-free high temperature water-splitting options driven by concentrated solar heat.
All staff, researchers, students and public interested in concentrating solar applications should find this lecture especially interesting as it entails using carbon-free renewable energy to increase the energy content of carbon-rich fossil fuels, resulting in carbon-lean feed stocks with the solar energy stored in chemical bonds.
