Tracking Concentration Transmission Reaction Urine Disinfection

Flexible as a garden hose, fiber optics are conduits that allow us to essentially bend light and deliver it to the reactor. Without fiber optics, complicated mechanical systems would be required to locate the reactor at the focal point.

Concentrated sunlight transmitted through flexible, fused fiber optic bundles illuminates the reactor.

  • We worked with several manufacturers to develop our concept of using fused borosilicate fiber optic bundles to transmit solar energy.
  • Sol-Char fiber bundles outperformed state-of-the-art bundles at a fraction of the cost.
