Absolicon at COP27: “Half of energy consumption is heat - solar heat can replace fossil fuels in industrial processes”

During the UN climate conference COP27, Absolicon participated in the COP27 Climate Hub, an on-site and digital broadcast hosted by We Don’t Have Time from Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt. Joakim Byström, CEO of Absolicon Solar Collector AB joined the broadcast from the Swedish hub at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, to talk about solar heat collectors as a clean energy solution.
Joakim Byström joined the COP27 Climate Hub on November 11 to talk about the importance of decarbonizing our heat production.

To decarbonize our industrial processes, we need a substantial supply of clean energy to mitigate the climate crisis and meet our increasing energy demand in an affordable way, as has been made even clearer by the war in Ukraine. But what is often overlooked in the clean energy discussion is that half of the energy that is used across the world takes the form of heat, and 90% of the natural gas that Europe imports from Russia go into providing heat to our buildings and industries. The potential for change here is enormous.
Absolicon has the solution to this problem. By using solar heat collectors, or parabolic troughs, to harness heat energy from the sun, we can convert 76% of the energy from the sun directly into heat power which can then be stored and used in everything from clothing production to food and beverage industries. This technology is being demonstrated in pilot plants worldwide and the technology can be produced rapidly to be deployed at scale.
“Our product is the robotized production line that can mass produce solar collectors. This robotized production line can make one parabolic trough every 6 minutes. We are building a worldwide network of parabolic trough producers, that are buying production lines from us and mass producing the solar collectors.” explains Joakim Byström.
