March 25, 2021 @ 6:00 am UTC / GMT (4:00 pm - 5:30 pm AEST)

The webinar will be held live on March 23rd and then rebroadcast on March 25th with a live Q/A.

Please join us for our first IEA SHC Solar Academy webinar in 2021 to hear about the work underway in IEA SHC Task 62: Solar Energy in Industrial Water & Wastewater Management.

Today, about 20% of the water use in the world is devoted to industrial use. Theoretically, a 100% solar ratio could be envisioned in solar heat supply for water treatment technologies as it is common practice to work with large volumes and buffer storages in this sector, allowing to some extent production capacity variation along with solar availability

Tune into this webinar to learn more on how researchers and industry are tapping into the large potential solar heat can contribute to industrial processes and water treatment. During this webinar, you will hear first hand about the technical work underway in SHC Task 62 on applying solar thermal energy and solar radiation to disinfect, decontaminate and separate industrial process water and wastewater.

 Presenters & Topics

  • Christoph Brunner - Nexus Solar Energy-Water-Industry
  • Isabel Oller - Towards industrial water footprint reduction via solar decontamination and disinfection advanced processes
  • Etienne Letournel - Solar powered water reuse and resource recovery – focus: mining industry

The webinar will be moderated by Bärbel Epp of solrico - solar market research & international communication.

Q/A Session: The 90-minute webinar will include a 30-minute Q/A session, and a recording will be available online afterward.

Presenters

Christoph Brunner

Nexus Solar Energy-Water-Industry
Christoph Brunner is CEO of AEE INTEC in Austria. He is leading his second SHIP-focused SHC Task, Task 62: Solar Energy in Industrial Water & Wastewater Management. In his day job, Christoph's work is focused on energy and resource efficiency, the integration of renewable energy for industry, like solar process heat and membrane distillation for wastewater purification, and process water upgrading. 
 

 

Isabel Oller

Towards industrial water footprint reduction via solar decontamination and disinfection advanced processes
Isabel Oller is the head of the Solar Treatment of Water Unit at the Plataforma Solar de Almeria (CIEMAT). She has more than 15 years of experience in the field of industrial and urban wastewater treatment, disinfection and reuse by using advanced oxidation processes (with and without solar energy) and their combination with physic-chemical pre-treatment systems, advanced biological treatments, membrane systems, and other conventional technologies. She is leading SHC Task 62's Subtask B on Solar Water Decontamination and Disinfection Systems.

 

Sacha Sineux

Solar-powered water reuse and resource recovery – focus: mining industry
Sacha Sineux joined newHeat in 2019 as a modelling and R&D engineer and holds a masters degree in Energy Systems and Markets.

 

 

 

Bärbel Epp - Moderator

Bärbel Epp is the founder and managing director of the German consultancy solrico – solar market research & international communication. She is responsible for the international newsletter on the web portal www.solarthermalworld.org, reporting exclusively about market and technology trends in the solar heating and cooling sector. solrico also published the first world map of SHIP suppliers (SHIP = Solar Heat for Industrial Processes) see www.solar-payback.com/suppliers.

 

 

The webinar is organized by the Solar Academy of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Program and hosted by ISES, the International Solar Energy Society.
