German INDUSTRIEPREIS for SCHOTT Receivers
Dr. Nikolaus Benz, Managing Director SCHOTT Solar CSP GmbH, accepted the “Deutsche Industriepreis” award for SCHOTT in the “Energy & Environment” category.
SCHOTT’s receivers provide an improved design of the receiver ends so that more sun rays can be converted into thermal energy. Moreover, a noble gas capsule can be opened to minimize the heat losses from the receiver – a technical “life insurance” that extends the expected lifespan of the receivers to up to 40 years.
