Atmospheric air-based concentrated solar power (CSP) systems

Read more about the project


LiqTech is part of the H2020 NEXTOWER project together with other highly competent companies in order to make innovative materials to boost the performance of atmospheric air-based concentrated solar power (CSP) systems to make them commercially viable.

Especially, LiqTech is part of developing new mechanically tough and highly thermally conductive SiC ceramic receivers, working under extreme thermal cycling without failure at a maximum material temperature of at least 800°C and delivering over 20 years of continued operations.

See a video of our SiC Ceramic Solar Receivers.

Objectives of the H2020 NEXTOWER project:

  • High-temperature receivers (durability & emissivity)
  • Thermal fatigue and thermal shock (especially in joints)
  • Thermal storage by liquid metals, e.g., lead-based systems (corrosion issues, efficiency, and max working temperature)Thermal fatigue and thermal shock (especially in joints)
