DuPont to display PV solutions at WFES 2009
Dubai, January 19, 2009
DuPont will highlight its newest offerings designed to benefit photovoltaic (PV) solar and wind turbine energy systems at the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) in Abu Dhabi.
Apart from these, the company will showcase a wide range of highly specialised solutions, products and services for the unique challenges of the renewable energy industry.
“The need for truly sustainable options for 21st century life remains one of the most critical challenges facing the global community,” said Stephan Padlewski, market and program leader, DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions.
“WFES offers an ideal opportunity to share how DuPont is putting science to work for a more sustainable future, developing materials for wind turbine systems, fuel cell technologies, and photovoltaic solutions, where the market has been growing rapidly.”
DuPont estimates the photovoltaic market has grown by more than 50 percent recently.
Through new innovation and investments in materials, technology development and manufacturing, DuPont is accelerating its ability to deliver innovations that will improve the lifetime and efficiency of photovoltaic modules, and to deliver enough production capability to help keep pace with the fast rising global demand.
Products from DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions are key to the manufacture of both crystalline silicon and thin film solar cells and modules.
They include films, resins, encapsulation sheets, flexible substrates and conductive pastes, as well as high performance seals for solar cell manufacturing equipment.
DuPont also has solutions for wind turbine systems, designed to increase component reliability, reduce weight, and lower installation and maintenance costs.
In addition, DuPont has Clean Technologies which provide an integrated approach to help O&G refineries meet strict environmental requirements to reduce sulphur emissions.
For biofuels, DuPont offers developments in its biobutanol and cellulosic ethanol programs. The advanced biofuels offer economical alternative sources of energy and have the potential to revolutionise the global biofuels industry.
The World Future Energy Summit 2009 will be the largest gathering of influential figures within the renewable energy sector.
It is expected to host 15,000 attendees in more than 20,000 sqm of exhibition space, which will include new feature areas to encourage networking and interaction.-TradeArabia News Service
