GLRPPR Sector Resource: Solar PV Recycling: Issues and Considerations for State Decision-Makers
This webinar provided an overview of what we can expect for future volumes of PV waste in the U.S., what technology solutions there are to turn waste modules into valuable recovered materials (and prevent toxic ones from harming our environment), and the status of the PV recycling industry and policy support structures in the US. Challenges and solutions to achieving a circular economy from waste PV modules were proposed and discussed.
Garvin Heath, a senior analyst at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), shared lessons learned and key insights from his research to inform state-level efforts to develop effective, efficient, and affordable PV module recycling and recovery strategies.
