Australian Researchers Assess the Commercial Viability of Solar Alumina Calcining

Commercializing alumina refining using solar heat Approximately 27% of Australia’s industrial carbon emissions come from alumina refineries, in which fossil fuels are burned to heat the processes. But concentrated solar thermal (CST) could provide up to half of the heat needed. Australian researchers have for the first time demonstrated a [...]

ARENA push for concentrated solar power in Australia
