Solar panels are becoming increasingly part of our everyday world, so ensuring they blend seamlessly into their surroundings is key. A good time then for us to discuss this issue and some possible solutions for color solar modules, with Sebastian Barth, Business Development Manager Electronic Materials, at Merck.
PES: Hello Sebastian and welcome back to PES. We have known Merck for quite some time, but maybe you can say something about your company for those who are not so familiar with you?
Sebastian Barth: Thanks. Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany is a science and technology company active in the areas of life science, healthcare, and electronic materials. Within the electronics sector we also have our surface solutions business unit where we develop effect pigments and other innovative solutions.
PES: And this is also where your solar activities are based?
