An economic evaluation regarding the industrial photosynthesis of fine chemical rose oxide using solar light is given and compared to conventional lamps as light source. A plant reaching a capacity of 100 was designed containing app. of parabolic troughs, of flatbed reactors or 32 high-pressure mercury lamps doped with Thallium iodide (TlI) as a photounit. The investment and production costs were compared and graded. We reached the conclusion that solar application is more profitable than the lamp driven one.
