The project will strengthen competitiveness and growth of European companies already engaged in CSP related activities. The new capacities acquired by the POLYPHEM partners from the private sector in the design and construction of components and products of high technology will allow to address existing markets with elevated added value and to increase their competitiveness. The project will also actively support the business activity of SMEs by opening a new field - complementary to conventional heat and power generation or thermal industrial processes- in which the early movers will have a decisive competitive advantage over potential competitors. Besides the power generation and desalted water generation markets targeted by the use of the POLYPHEM technology, the outcomes of the project will create new business opportunities for industries developing products like technical concrete, organic Rankine cycles, high temperature and high performanc heat exchangers, insulating materials and thermal processes that compose the innovative POLYPHEM cycle.
