Breakthrough in PV module recycling

PV cycle has announced a new record in silicon based PV module recycling, achieving a 96% recycling rate in real-world performance.

The new process allows the recycling of silicon flakes, a combination of EVA laminate, silicon-based semiconductors and metals, in an economic and environmentally sound manner. The advanced process is currently being applied at one of PV cycle’s Europe-based recycling partners for silicon-PV modules.

With today average recycling rates of 90% for silicon based (all recycling partners combined) and up to 97% for non-silicon based PV modules, PV CYCLE’s Europe business has already been exceeding both industry and WEEE standards.
