PHOTOVOLTAIC – Systems for recycling photovoltaic panels

By 2050 it is estimated that there will be more than 78 million tonnes of old photovoltaic panels to be managed in terms of recycling and recovery of secondary raw materials.

The management of end-of-life photovoltaic modules offers the opportunity to recover various materials to be reintroduced into production processes also thanks to the efficiency of material recovery, which today stands at 98%.

The process developed by Osai GreenTech involves the creation of an automated system capable of disassembling and selectively separating the materials that make-up the panels (glass, plastic, aluminium, silicon and copper), and preparing them for subsequent chemical treatment of the cells and recycling of the elements.

Osai GreenTech also makes its expertise and technology available to its customers to develop customised solutions based on specific recovery or recycling needs.
