PV Module Recycling: Mining Australian Rooftops

Kang, Di; White, Thomas; Thomson, Andrew


The disposal of photovoltaic waste will be a major concern in the future due to the rapid growth of Australia’s photovoltaic installations in the past decade. Assuming the nominal power of each solar panel is 200 W and the solar panels are retired after 20 years, more than one million used solar panels will need to be disposed from 2030 to 2034. This report studies the economic feasibility of recycling crystalline silicon based modules in Australia. The results from the proposed model indicate...[Show more]
