Paint That Creates Electricity Using Solar Heat


Solar Heat and Electricity

There is a new paint technology that harnesses the heat collected by large exposed paintsurfaces. Researchers from the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) and the Korea Electrotechnology Research Institute have developed a thermoelectric paint. The new paint will convert electric energy from waste heat off hot painted surfaces.

The researchers posted their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Combining bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) with molecular sintering aids, the paint has a wide range of applications and can be applied on curved surfaces and using a brush. It can also be applied to any heat source regardless of shape or size.

LEAD PAINT PROBLEMS?

TDJ Group: How We Help

Here at TDJ Group, we specialize in specifics of industrial waste stabilization. We work on not only stabilization of lead and other metals but work on making the process as simple as you can get.

One Step Lead Abatement With Blastox®

Our lead abatement product, Blastox®, is an additive to sandblasting material and used for stabilizing heavy metals in blasting projects.

  • One Step ApplicationU.S. Steel
  • Pre-blended with various media
  • Ready to use on site when delivered
    • No additional labor
  • Been used successfully over 150,000,000 square feet of lead paint
  • After use, waste is tested via TCLP to classify as non-hazardous
  • Can dispose as non-hazardous
    • Saves time and money

It’s been approved by the Federal Highway Administration and most state DOTs. Many industrial engineers specify it by name.

Blastox®, like other TDJ chemistries is a complex calcium silicate based product. It stabilizes heavy metals through multiple mechanisms:

  • pH Adjustment
  • Chemical Reactions
  • Encapsulation
