This combined process heat and power system will use parabolic trough collectors (see photo) by Canadian-based Rackam to dry tobacco and generate electricity for an agribusiness. The relevant contracts have been signed and construction is set to start this summer. The plant is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2019.

USA: Concentrated Solar Thermal for Biosolid Drying

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 9, 2017
RackamSince the summer, two parabolic trough collectors have been drying sludge at a waste water treatment plant in Surprise in the state of Arizona, USA. The test project was developed by US-based Heat2Hydro to evaluate the effectiveness of this solution. The objective is to reduce the water content of the sludge and make it easier to transport. The municipality aims at expanding solar drying capacity to 5 MW thermal in about two years.
