SOLABOLIC started as a research and development project for a new generation of parabolic trough solar collectors, based on a patented technology invented by Dipl.-Ing. Ahmed Adel. The Vienna University of Technology has been a project partner since 2013.

The project SOLABOLIC was selected as a start-up to receive grants from the Austrian government, through the business incubator INiTS and Austria Wirtschaftsservice (aws).

The company, Solabolic GmbH, was founded in 2016.
