Solar thermal technologies: clean fit for food and beverage industries

Solar thermal technologies can best supply the low to medium heat range required for processing in the food and beverage industries. Currently in agriprocessing in South Africa, up to 77% of energy use is for heating processes. Most of this energy comes from non-renewable sources, leading to extensive greenhouse gas emissions. There is an emerging climate-smart opportunity for solar thermal technology businesses to capture this market.
