About new solutions for recycling photovoltaic modules.
With the energy transition context, recycling photovoltaic materials is a key issue. Specific solutions for photovoltaic modules are intended by CEA-Liten teams at INES with the launch of the CABRISS project. Based on the growing concept of a 'circular economy' the CABRISS project aims to:
- Collect up to 90% of the photovoltaic waste in Europe,
- Retrieve up to 90% valued raw materials (Silicium, Indium, Silver),
- Produce cost-effective (-25%) photovoltaic cells and modules from recycled raw materials while keeping performance with a specific process.
These sustainable solutions for recycling photovoltaic waste are a good opportunity for European solar photovoltaic industry to reach 50% of the European market in 2020.
During the 6th International Conference on crystal photovoltaics "Silicon PV" at Chambéry (center of congress Le Manège) a thematic day will focus on recycling phtovoltaic. For more information, please check our agenda.
