Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

The future belongs to renewable and clean energy. But what about the present? In view of the increasing energy consumption and pessimistic forecasts for the energy revolution, renewable sources such as solar radiation must be used more intensively. There are many different ways to use the sun's energy technically. In contrast to photovoltaics, solar thermal power plants (CSPs) generate electricity with the help of heat and water steam. Around 90 percent of CSP operators rely on the so-called parabolic trough system - and in many places they value the thermostable and durable Diphyl heat transfer medium from LANXESS. In the power plant "Arenales" in Andalusia, for example, the sun's rays are bundled by parabolic mirrors onto an absorber tube in which about 2,200 tons of diphyl circulate. The heated medium is used to generate steam via a heat exchanger, which then generates environmentally friendly electricity for around 50,000 Spanish households via a steam turbine.
