SolarOSE - Solar concentrator for steam generation
An open source solar concentrator to provide thermal energy for many applications. This document describes the construction of a linear Fresnel solar concentrator. The prototype is adapted for heat needs between 100°C and 250°C. Current levels of energy consumption are generally unsustainable. The use of solar energy favors a better distribution of the territorial economic activity. Meanwhile, many actual models are either designed for the industry, either for cooking in the South countries. Open Source Ecologie France researches and develops a solar concentrator made for an intermediary market, in order to make possible for little producers, artisans and micro-industries the use of solar energy.

Solar coffee roaster (using a Scheffler concentrator)
It is about a coffee roaster that works with solar energy. The solar energy is collected by a Scheffler concentrator, a very good open-source technology, used since a while worldwide to cook. [http://www.solare-bruecke.org/index.php/en/die-scheffler-reflektoren This page explains the working principle of the Scheffler concentrator.]

Plastic Extrusion Machine
Extrusion is a continuous process where plastic flakes are inserted in the hopper and extruded into a line of plastic. These lines can be used to make new raw material (3d printing filament), granulate, spinned around a mold or up to you to find new creative ways.
