Globally unique technology for photovoltaic scrap recycling saves raw materials
Indium, selenium, tellurium and gallium - rare metals from the glass sandwich
Until recently, discarded photovoltaic modules were - at best - shredded and used for the production of low quality glass. The rare metals they contained were lost for good. Thanks to an innovative and environmentally friendly technology developed in the Loser Holding group, the fragile glass layers of the thin film modules can be separated from each other successfully and used by the high quality raw materials industry. Rare metals such as indium, selenium, tellurium and gallium which are otherwise expensive and have to be imported are recovered from the scrap. The panel glass can be used directly for the manufacturing of float glass, and the ferrous back-cover glass can be used in the manufacturing of windows, for example. At CWT Chemische Werke Tangermünde GmbH in Saxony-Anhalt, which is part of the Loser group, the first industrial system is to go into use processing PV scrap.
This is a unique technology, worldwide, for the recycling of photovoltaic modules. What is the USP of this technology? Read everything in the full article here: http://www.invest-in-saxony-anhalt.com/report-invest/newsletter-iisa/2016/06/technology-PV-scrap-recycling
