plan to reclaim PV waste
Pv recycling, llc of Tempe, Arizona, a recycler
of photovoltaic module waste, and Swiss based Encros signed a
memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop collection and recycling
systems in North America and Europe.
This alliance will unite pv recycling, llc’s business development
and administrative expertise with Encros’ advanced scientific
technologies and experienced facility management.
Under the terms of the MOU, Encros will develop, test and operate
recycling technologies, while pv recycling, llc will implement
and manage areas related to administration, logistics, and regulatory
Together the two entities will comarket their services to companies
in the solar supply chain. The initial focus will be on solar
panel manufacturers selling products in North America and Europe.
As aging installations in Europe are being replaced and demand
for United States module manufacturing increases, the volume
of panels reaching their end of life and the inevitable factory
scrap will need to be handled in a sustainable manner.
