Author: Wolfgang Scheffler
Date: July 2006 (presented at the Granada solar cooking conference)
Abstract: In this paper we are going to describe the most recent developments in our ongoing work in India to build a solar crematorium. The project went through many stops and goes, but in the last years we made some considerable progress and are now quite confident to have a working full size prototype ready by the end of this year. A special Scheffler reflector was developed for this purpose, with an increased concentration ratio of about c = 600 and 50m² reflector surface. It is designed to heat a 2m long cremation chamber to above 700 C.
