The report contains a preliminary assessment, based on available data, of the extent to which various materials will be used as heat transfer media in solar energy systems and of mechanisms for their release to the environment. The emphasis is on solar thermal energy systems for industrial, agricultural and electrical production applications over the next 5-10 years. The study provides an assessment of consequences associated with transport and fate of the materials in the environment; identifies available pollution control techniques; and cites areas where further research may be required.
