BIOSOLAR CELLS PDF

Description[ edit ] Multiple layers of photosystem I gather photonic energy, convert it into chemical energy and create a current that goes through the cell. The cell itself consists of many of the same non-organic materials that are found in other solar cells with the exception of the injected photosystem I complexes which are introduced and gathered for several days in the gold layer. After days the photosytem I are made visible and appear as a thin green film. It is this thin film that helps and improves the energy conversion.

Advanced manipulation of bio-based polymers allows BioSolar to produce both robust and durable components, which, according to the company, meet the requirements of current solar cell manufacturing processes. Moreover, the bio-based polymers used in the process are more widely available, and therefore, relatively inexpensive.

Backsheets, which are traditionally made from petroleum-based film, are in essence a protective covering widely used in the back of modern photovoltaic solar cells. At the recent SPIE Symposium on Solar Applications and Energy the company has lifted the veil on some of the technological details of its BioBacksheet, revealing that the materials used in the product were derived from cotton and castor beans.

Specifically, the bio-based components are a composite of cellulosic material derived from cotton, combined with an arcane nylon nylon 11 derived from castor beans. David Lee. The same technology can be applied to produce the superstrate layer and the substrate layer as well as module and panel components. Stan Levy. Not only is this product produced from sustainable and renewable resources, but is expected to be more cost effective than the current backsheets.

A: BioSolar is in a preproduction stage for the BioBacksheet, which is designed to replace existing petroleum based backsheets currently being used in C-Si PV modules as well as certain thin film PV modules. Q: Could you elaborate on the technology behind the bio-based materials and their manufacturing process?

However, PV backsheets are produced from petrol-based chemicals, which to a certain extent, defeats the purpose of using solar energy. Materials from sustainable resources were targeted for PV backsheet development at BioSolar: a cellulosic made from cotton, and a type of nylon made from castor beans.

Some of these films were coated with various materials to lower the WVTR. A: Both materials, the cellulosic from cotton and the nylon from castor, are both high-temperature resistant and very durable films, comparable to backsheet films currently in use.

Our cellulosic film and nylon resin already have the required Underwriters Laboratories Inc. UL product certification. Q: How does a bio-based solar cell compare performance-wise to its traditional petroleum-based counterpart, in particular when it comes to its efficiency and durability? A: The BioBacksheet is designed to perform equal to or better than, and as durable as, its traditional petroleum-based counterpart.

The only differences are that they are made from renewable materials at a lower cost. Q: How do you see BioSolar position itself in the future of photovoltaic industry? Our first commercial product to be introduced is the BioBacksheet, but we are also looking into other PV module components for possible future introduction. TFOT has recently covered a number of innovative technologies regarding solar power.

Biohybrid solar cell

Biobased Through biosolar cells, researchers try to improve photosynthesis, the process through which plants, algae and some bacteria capture sunlight. There are many research programs in the area of direct conversion of sunlight, and each of those takes this technology a step further. Huub de Groot in his lab. Photo: biosolarcells. Approaching the practically achievable maximum The research is progressing steadily. In the lab we now have been successful in achieving two thirds of this threshold. We increasingly develop catalysts that can process CO2.
