Solar heating with Lift-Up’s absorber is an easy and robust procedure and also CO2 neutral. The affordable absorbers can meet with the huge need that populations around the world are facing.
A difference between the traditional flat-plate collectors and Lift-Up’s absorber is the volume of the absorber. Flat-plate collectors have a content of appr 2 liters liquid while Lift-Up’s absorbers can hold 10-40 liters liquid per square meter. With this follows that the temperature does not rise too much with risk for evaporation of the water. It is common knowledge that the efficency of a collector dramatically decreases when the temperature is too high. Lift-Up’s absorber allows big quantities of energy can be stored on walls and roofs.
The market for solar heating grows independently - without support from governments - (contrary to for instance wind and PV) with appr 20% per year. Solar heating from Lift-Up’s absorber are part of renewable energy technologies with potential for bigger growth in the future.
The Lift-Up’s absorber can after 20-30 years of use be recycled with the Polyplank®-method.
