  • Content Description: The general objectives of this study are to determine the technical and economic feasibility of the use of solar energy for heating waters in the textile industry and to develop a plan for efforts beyond this feasibility study phase. Specific objectives include (1) determine the industry requirements for heated process water, (2) assess particular schemes and their economic impact, (3) study the total cost environment for solar water heating in this industry, and (4) recommend future experiments. Major progress has been made this period in terms of collaboration with textile firms, user needs, and dissemination of results. Software for facilitating the design of potential systems has reached an intermediate stage of development. The cost environment has been probed and is being systematically documented. Long-term economic impact programs are in the advanced stage of development. Areas of future effort have been prescribed.
