ONYX Solar takes care of business and project development for Photo-Voltaic-Glass particularly in German speaking countries, but also others. Beside that, we are inventing off-grid applications using PV-Glass as a clean energy resource.

Our partner Onyx Solar Energy in Ávila, Spain is the world-leading manufacturer of transparent photovoltaic (PV) glass for buildings. PV Glass is used as building material plus as an energy-generating device. It is made of two or more panes of heat-treated safety glass, and it provides the same thermal and sound insulation, and natural light as a conventional architectural glass. Thus, it is a substitute of conventional glass on building facades, curtain walls, atriums, canopies and terrace floor, among others.

The company, incorporated back in 2009, has completed more than 150 projects worldwide. It has offices in Spain, United States and China, and an annual production capacity of 490.000 m2. Counting on ISO and UN-EN certifications, as well as IEC and UL product listings, our clients rely on proven quality for all of our products and processes.

Considering all milestones achieved, Onyx Solar has become the most awarded photovoltaic company in the world, with over 40 prizes and mentions.

Natural Greenwalls are environmentally friendly walls of plants, which can be placed indoors and outdoors. Natural Greenwalls create an atmosphere that you like being in – physically and mentally. They last for years and are easy to setup and maintain. Plant walls reduce noise, clean the air of dust, improve air quality by stabilizing humidity levels, stimulate job satisfaction, higher concentration levels, reduce stress, promote creativity etc. The result of being surrounded by greenery is clear. We just feel better!

Farm2Future explores integrated solutions to some of the most pressing challenges modern cities face in food security. We develop new agri-systems for cities that can produce food on smaller and alternative areas, and protect crops with less environmental impact. Our solutions include stand alone, closed systems for food production, integrated pest management and new innovations in bio-materials.

With the advance of technology, it is becoming easier to control what future built environments will look like. Virtual and Augmented Reality is the latest addition to digital visualization of buildings and cities, and can give you the opportunity of visiting and experiencing places that are not physically built. It can help builders, architects and clients see the impact of design choices, even before laying a single brick. It provides a useful tool in communicating with clients and engaging stakeholders. The future is now, come experience some of such projects for yourself. Start your journey into Virtual/Augmented Reality with Dutch VR.

With about 4,500 built heating systems as well as 1,000 sold wood chippers, they are among the largest in Germany. Their pioneering products like battery storage systems and absorption refrigeration technology are just a few of the new, efficient and innovative products they provide to their clients and customers.

Our bees are special for something completely different. For their bee air. We use bee hive air for therapy. The air from a hive can make a valuable contribution to the quality of life and many people are unaware that bee air provides relief for hay fever, asthma, depression, stress, migraine and many other disorders. This kind of therapy is still relatively unknown in Canada but in Europe this has been applied for 30 years. Through a bee filter and ventilator you inhale pure beehive air. The bee air is a natural product and is produced when the nectar and pollen are processed by the bees into honey and beeswax. The air contains many volatile substances and various organic acids, substances that have a positive effect on human well-being.

In 2017, Dudoc Vancouver welcomed its Dutch partner Duraflow.

Duraflow

Duraflow offers an innovative climate control system for buildings. By applying phase changing materials (PCM) intelligently, Duraflow stabilizes the indoor temperature and greatly reduces the power that is needed for heating and cooling. The energy savings result in reduced CO2-emmissions and decreased maintenance to the climate installation. Duraflow’s installation can be applied to many situations. These include office automation, renovation, and construction of buildings and they are particularly effective in data centres.

Phase Changing Materials

The innovative installation works with PCM. The best-known PCM is water, with well-known phase changing from solid to liquid at 0 degrees Celsius. The exclusive technical PCM-material that Duraflow frequently uses is based on a water/salt solution. They can melt and congeal these solutions at any desired temperature.

PCM-materials can store heat. This heat is transferred from the space to the wrapped PCM-material. The heat is being transferred from the PCM-material to the space as well. It is important that the heat exchange is established in such a way that the PCM-material changes controllably from solid to liquid and from liquid to solid. We created our own PCM-material, packaging and fill process. Our PCM is wrapped in HDPE-plastic panels. To determine the speed of charging and discharging we have created our own mathematical models. These models are subsequently re-measured in the measurement room of Autarkis in cooperation with our German PCM knowledge platform the RAL-Gütegemeinschaft to best suit each situation.

Method

Duraflow is a 100% Dutch company that also works with 100% Dutch partners on systems which are available internationally. Duraflow and our partners are aligned with the most important PCM-knowledge institutes. We offer our products and our services as a complete package. We can install, commission and guarantee a long-lasting operation of our products at your location, under your own management. To realize this, Duraflow works together with partners. Among them are specialists in the field of consulting, installation design, interior design, control engineering, sustainability, energy supply, and outfitting and assembling.

Warranty and the life span

Duraflow conforms to a quality assurance, which is defined as the 10,000 cycles test as determined by the RAL-Gütegemeinschaft. This means that the PCM should function for 90% after 10,000 times of completely transferring from or to the PCM material. By applying more PCM, the 10,000 cycle starts with 110% PCM. Our mathematical models and tests show that with a normal application of PCM in offices, the 10,000 cycles will be reached after approximately 25 years and after approximately 100 years in data centres.

Partners

Our select European partners offer top innovations for sustainable buildlings and design.
