SOLAR-JET receives 1st aireg Award for producing the first solar kerosene that can easily be used as fuel for aviation!
Schematic of the solar reactor configuration for the two-step solar-driven thermochemical production of fuels. It consists of a cavity-receiver containing a porous monolithic ceria cylinder. Concentrated solar radiation enters through a windowed aperture and impinges on the ceria inner walls. Reacting gases flow radially across the porous ceria, while product gases exit the cavity through an axial outlet port. Red arrow indicates ceria reduction (oxygen evolution); blue arrow indicates oxidation (fuel production).
After four years, SOLAR-JET will deliver the following main results generated through EU funding:
