How can the costs of industrial pasteurization be reduced using solar energy?

Apart from heat pumps and other techniques used for recovering energy from existing heat sources in a factory, the parabolic solar concentrator provides two advantages: 1. Reducing the consumption of fossil fuels for process heat generation2. Lower cooling costs by reducing the heat input to the roof with the installation of solar collectors that absorb […]

Solar desalination

The market for desalination and the different technical solutions available

Desalination file, Article 2/3 As discussed in the previous article “Solar desalination, a solution to a growing global problem”, desalination seems to be the most appropriate technical way to solve the global freshwater shortage. First of all, it would provide another supply source, especially in countries close to the ocean that experience substantial hydric stress. […]

World Climate Summit 2015

COP21, the decarbonisation of global energy has begun

Why “decarbonise” global energy?  The 20th century saw global temperatures increased by 0.9 ° C and in the past 30 years this trend has accelerated. This has resulted in major and dramatic changes: undesirable changes in ecosystems: species extinction, appearance of exotic species and viruses such as Lyme disease; increased frequency of severe weather events: […]

The G7 members pledge to phase out world’s use of fossil fuels by the end of the 21rst century

The G7 group of industrial nations have pledged to phase out the world’s use of fossil fuels by the end of the 21st century.  The leaders stressed that “deep cuts in global greenhouse gas emissions” were required with “a decarbonisation of the global economy over the course of this century”. The aim was to send […]

Our projects
Bienter - University of Thrace

Rackam and Bienter begin work on a research laboratory at the University of Thrace

The laboratory will consist of a technological showcase and will combine the production of solar thermal energy with a field of S20 parabolic troughs with a low-depth geothermal installation. The plant will be equipped with a storage system and an ORC turbine, and will provide both heat and electricity to greenhouses. The project will have a nominal […]
