Absolicon’s technology is part of the AB InBev’s 100+ Accelerator initiative where carbon reduction is one of six designated focus areas. Out of over a thousand applications, Absolicon partner Greenline Africa was selected as part of the initiative. Each company that qualified is promised $100,000 for pilot projects.
The smaller solar collector installation that AB InBev now will install will provide Maputo Brewery in Mozambique with heat for bottle cleaning and reduce the company’s heat-related carbon dioxide emissions. The solar heating system will be installed in the summer of 2020.
After evaluating the smaller solar collector field at the factory, the next stage is a solar heating system of just over 20,000 sqm with the capacity to save 6,000 tons of CO2 per year.
In June 2019, Absolicon signed a framework agreement with Greenline Africa for the acquisition of a production line that manufactures Absolicon’s concentrated solar collector T160 for solar panels on site in the region. The agreement with InBev is the result of one of the processes that Greenline has pushed to meet the steps described in the framework agreement with Absolicon.
