Ultra-violet (high temperature heating)


Technology Description

Ultraviolet radiation (UV) is the part of the electromagnetic spectrum between 40 and 400 nm, with higher frequency and higher energy than the visible light. The use of UV light to heat objects is a photochemical process used to cure or instantly harden special compounds. The use of an UV lamp provides the radiant energy necessary to drive the polymerization reaction. This technology can be applied in several industrial processes like the automotive part manufacturing, printing, food packaging and electronics.

Relevance for Net Zero

This technology can reduce the on-site emissions of thermal processes, with a much faster (both in start-up and shut-down phases) and more efficient heating solution. The use of renewable electricity can guarantee a CO2-free heating process. It may have good potential for medium temperature heat applications, but its applications in high temperature heat is likely limited.
