The fundamental research project SolPol-1 addresses the following research topics in three Work Packages and aims at the results indicated:

WP-01:    Performance requirements for polymeric materials in solar-thermal systems – Component specific definition of performance and property profiles incl. the quantification of physical and technical material properties.
WP-02:    Development and implementation of accelerated test and characterization methods for polymeric materials for water and air exposed solar-thermal components.
WP-03:    National and global perspectives for plastics based solar-thermal collector systems – Scenario approach for market potential, eco and life cycle analysis, and economic assessment of the effect on greenhouse gas reduction.
