PVCycle: Recycling Modules


The Plan-net Solar Company has Joined the PV CYCLE Association for Recycling Modules


With the rising number of solar power plants, one justifiably starts to wonder what happens with a solar power plant at the end of its lifespan. These thoughts mainly concern the essential component of the power plant, the photovoltaic modules. The most developed European countries have faced this problem some time ago and this led to the foundation of the PV Cycle association. The main purpose of the PV Cycle associations is to realise the commitment of the photovoltaic industry to take care of the PV modules through their entire life cycle. They are designed to produce clean energy for at least 30 years. The first worn-out PV modules are already appearing and we can expect an increase in the number of worn-out modules in need of proper recycling, which would, along with reducing pollution due to less waste, also help lower the electricity consumption required for the extraction of these materials. The goal of the PV Cycle association is to organise a network for depositing and collecting PV modules and promoting recycling. In practice, this means placing special collection containers. Plan-net has joined this network of collection locations and this enables all natural and legal persons to deposit their worn-out PV modules. We at Plan-net believe that by recycling worn-out modules, the photovoltaic industry is laying the ground for its sustainable development and cementing the role of solar power plants as a clean energy source.

The Recycling Process


Photovoltaic modules contain materials, which can be recycled and reused in the production of new modules or other new products. The recycling process for mono-crystal and poly-crystal modules, as well as for thin-film modules, has already been perfected to the point, where it is appropriate for wide-spread industrial use. Recycling provides us with valuable materials, such as glass, aluminium and semi-conductive materials.


Along with reducing pollution due to less waste, recycling also helps to lower electricity consumption, which is required for the extraction of these materials. By recycling worn-out modules, the PV industry is laying the ground for its sustainable development and reassuring the role of solar power plants as a clean energy source.
