In the days we are living, the Ecological approach has become a necessity as the environment is facing a lot of challenges: material exploitation, energy abuse, global warming, etc. That is why the topic of the bachelor project was Ecological design and the main focus was to create a kettle that exploits a renewable source of energy to heat 1L of water in 10 min.
The result was a solar parabolic dish that is used in camping trips, foldable, using the solar energy to heat and made from the ecological materials existing nowadays. Instead of mirrors, rPET fabric with a reflective tendency was used to reflect the solar energy to the focal point.
