Innovative solar collector for process heat applications with selective coating as competitive edge (COSmIC)

January 2019 – December 2020


This research project addresses the development of an innovative solar collector for industrial process heat applications that require thermal energy at temperatures between 180ºC and 250ºC.



  • Project technical coordinator.
  • Design and built an innovative and versatile solar collector with the following novel features: high versatility, light weight, easy installation, no flexible joint and low O&M costs.
  • Experimental evaluation of the collector components and the overall collector performance (efficiency).
