Experiencia en revestimientos y nanomateriales para plantas de energía solar concentrada para participar en proyectos de I+D del programa H2020


Oferta Tecnológica
Un instituto de investigación español ofrece su experiencia en nanomateriales y revestimientos funcionales para plantas de energía solar concentrada con el fin de aumentar el rendimiento y reducir costes. El centro de investigación ofrece su trayectoria y experiencia previa en este campo de aplicación, específicamente en soluciones de limpieza automática de espejos, revestimientos anticorrosión protectores, revestimientos absorbentes de radiación infrarroja y nanoaditivos para sales fundidas y fluidos térmicos. El objetivo es formar un consorcio con RTDs (research technology development performers), industrias y pymes que desarrollen actividades en el campo de energía fotovoltaica y presentar propuestas a convocatorias del programa H2020, en concreto en la convocatoria SC3-RES-35-2020: reducir el costo y aumentar el rendimiento y fiabilidad de plantas de energía solar concentrada.


Expertise in coatings and nanomaterials for concentrated solar power (CSP) plants for applying to H2020 R-Y-D projects
A Spanish research institute offers its expertise in nanomaterials and functional coatings for concentrated solar power plants in order to increase performance and reduce costs. The centre offers their background and previous expertise for this field of application regarding self-cleaning solutions for mirrors, protective anticorrosion coatings, infrared rays absorbing coatings and nano-additives for molten salts and thermal fluids. They look for project proposals to H2020 calls.
A Spanish non-profit private technological centre has a large trajectory in international cooperation. The centre has coordinated 19 of the total 43 participated European projects from FP4 to Horizon 2020 including LIFE and ECO-Innovation programs. The main R-Y-D fields where the centre develops its activities are nanotechnology, new materials and advanced-environment technologies.

The centre has a great expertise in the development and production of nanomaterials and nano-coatings with advanced properties and is currently working in projects related with thermal solar power plants. In this way, in thermal energy storage, the centre could provide improvements in different systems such as:

- Self-cleaning effects based on hydrophilic coatings to be applied in mirrors of heliostats. These coatings maintain the surface of the mirror clean in order to avoid dust accumulation on solar collectors causing energy losses and requiring cost cleaning procedures. The coatings do not modify the reflectance capacity of the mirror.

- IR (infrared) absorbing coatings developed by the centre. These selective coatings can be applied over receivers in order to increase their efficiency.

- The centre has developed anticorrosion coatings for metal substrates. These coatings are applied in storage tanks that should address extreme conditions of high temperature and corrosive environment with the aim of using cheaper steel grades.

- Nanoparticles to additive solar molten salts improving its thermophysical properties.

The technology centre is offering its expertise in order to form a consortium with research technology development performers (RTDs), industries and SMEs related to a range of activities related to photovoltaic energy in the context of H2020 calls such as the topic LC-SC3-RES-35-2020: Reduce the cost and increase performance and reliability of CSP (concentrated solar power) plants.
Advantages and Innovations:
Laboratory solutions that are replicable and can be-upscaled: the capabilities of the centre to reach TRL7 (technology readiness level) regarding nanomaterials production and functional coatings and surfaces is guaranteed by its infrastructure.

Their competitive advantage is their high flexibility in production capacity (from tens of grams/hour to kilograms/hour) of nanomaterials. They have several production lines of flame spray pyrolysis synthesis technology (FSP).

In addition, wet-chemistry and coatings production is also developed from lab to pilot scale counting with pilot scale reactors (up to 1000 l), dispersion and wet milling lines; robot and spray booths; dip coating systems and an automated spraying coating line for pipelines.
