  • Concentrated Solar Power would supply the round-the-clock heat needed in that mining processes

    Iron, nickel, alumina and copper mining processes are among the industrial processes that require heat at between 700°C and 1000°C. The advanced concentrated solar thermal (CST) reactors being developed by researchers globally can attain temperatures this high (and higher, up to 1500°C).But CEOs in mining and mineral processing industries are more familiar with fuel combustion than

  • Scientists use past research on salts to develop concentrated solar power

    Concentrated solar power and nuclear power may appear to be extremely different energy sources. Nuclear power originates from the energy discharged when neutrons crash into uranium atoms, splitting them apart.Solar power originates from the sunlight shining down on earth. However, a few concentrated solar power plants turn that light into heat, which can be utilized in the same manner as the heat
