USA: Skyline Innovations Solar System Uses Bioglycol

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 4, 2014
US-American solar thermal project developer Skyline Innovation has just finished its first solar thermal installation with a bio-based heat transfer fluid called Susterra 1,3-propanediol. The glycol produced by US-American company DuPont Tate & Lyle BioProducts is made entirely of biomaterials, using corn instead of petroleum-based feedstock. It was delivered under the brand name Intercool Bio-Green by US-American company Interstate Chemical Co., which mixed the glycol with water and inhibitors to produce a heat transfer fluid suitable for solar installations.
