BioSolar, Inc. has developed a breakthrough technology to produce bio-based
materials from renewable plant sources that will reduce the cost per watt of
solar cells. Most of the solar industry is focused on photovoltaic efficiency
to reduce cost.
BioSolar materials can be used directly in conventional manufacturing systems,
such as injection molding and thin-film roll-to-roll, to create superstrate
layer, substrate layer, backsheet as well as module and panel components. Whether
solar cells are produced using crystalline silicon, amorphous silicon or other
solar technologies, BioSolar can help reduce the cost per watt through the use
of its lower cost bio-based materials. By removing petroleum from solar cells,
BioSolar makes solar energy a true green source of energy.
