Plant-based Solar Technology Ready for the Big Leagues
BioSolar, a company developing a new technology to produce bio-based materials from renewable plant sources, has plans to strike up manufacturing partnerships to reduce production costs of its BioBacksheet product and meet bulkier orders. The company hopes its technology will reduce the cost of photovoltaic (PV) solar modules.
“Recent events have helped us to solidify our strategic plan. Excess manufacturing capacity exists throughout the world, and many manufacturers are eager to work with fully developed technology products like BioBacksheet. To accelerate our business growth, BioSolar will focus its efforts on its core strengths, which include development of proprietary products and marketing efforts that have propelled us into a trusted position in biobased PV components,” said Dr. David Lee, CEO of BioSolar.
BioBacksheet is the only UL approved bio-based backsheet for use in solar panels, and it is a direct replacement for conventional backsheets currently used in over 70 percent of solar panels in the world. Backsheets are the necessary bottom layers of fully assembled solar energy panels. The product is made from renewable green material, and the company promises lower cost, higher durability, and potential to provide higher panel efficiency.
BioSolar has been developing is BioBacksheet over the last four years. In 2012 it expects its technology will be arriving at full-scale commercial production and volume delivery.
BioSolar recently made its debut at the recent GovGreen Conference in Washington, D.C., a venue for government decision-makers looking for green solutions.
