Sabic and VU University Amsterdam: Keep the Temperature under Control

The objective of the exclusive, worldwide collaboration between Sabic, Sittard, the Netherlands, and VU University Amsterdam is to develop and commercialize the university’s technology invention to keep the temperature in solar energy collectors under control.

The solar thermal technology will harness sunlight to collect heat. The energy from sunlight generates temperatures in solar energy collectors that often exceed the melting point of plastic materials, requiring the collectors to be constructed from expensive metals and glass that are heavy and restrictive in their design freedom. The concept developed and patented by VU University uses an “optical switch” by creating a prismatic structure of the thermoplastic panels made from Sabic’s Lexan polycarbonate sheet in such a way that, the sunlight can be reflected before the panels get too hot.
