SOCIAL Boiling with solar replaces coal or furnace oil and has a positive effect on local air quality.

THE TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE

ENVIRONMENTAL The ARUN has an efficiency-rate of 60%-65%, which is better than most other CSP technologies, reports Clique Solar.

By mixing the properties of a magnifying glass and a sunflower, the ARUN solar dish is able to concentrate sunlight. This concentrated solar power (CSP) technology involves a parabolic dish of mirrors that focuses sunbeams to a single point and heats liquids and gases up to 350°C. Like a sunflower, the ARUN tracks the sun and can rotate in a north-south and east-west direction, maximizing energy input. Occupying a ground area of just 9 m2, the ARUN is a flexible solution that can be installed in a wide variety of settings. The ARUN is relevant wherever hot water, steam, or air is a necessity, such as in industrial process heating and community cooking. The technology can power drive refrigeration systems. WHY A SUSTAINIA100 SOLUTION? As much as 30% of the energy consumed around the world is in the industrial sector, and process heat accounts for the major share.1 The ARUN CSP technology can replace boilers fueled with furnace oil, diesel, coal, and natural gas.

ECONOMIC With an expected life of more than 25 years, the ARUN saves fuel worth more than the capital expenses.
