SUN-to-LIQUID uses a solar thermochemical cycle to convert sunlight, water and CO2 into renewable kerosene. The key components of the process are a highly concentrating solar field, a receiver-reactor and a gas to liquid unit. By direct conversion of thermal energy into chemical energy the process has a high theoretical efficiency potential. Within the project the whole production chain from solar energy to kerosene was demonstrated in field for the first time with record reactor efficiency.
