RECYCLE PV SOLAR and PV CYCLE announced the start of an integrated partnership between two organizations promoting solar PV recycling and waste treatment of all components of a PV system. This partnership allows both companies to ramp up a nationwide management of decommissioned solar power plants for the collection and treatment of discarded solar panels.
More than 7 million tons of photovoltaic panels have been installed in the United States, and one day they will all reach the end of their lifecycle. Today, PV Panels and inverters are already returning due to transport or installation damage, severe weather conditions and warranty claims.
For owners of PV Systems, RECYCLE PV SOLAR and PV CYCLE have created a lean and mean service for reuse, recycling and treatment of decommissioned solar power plants and discarded components.
“Our mission is to keep PV waste out of landfills and to properly treat all the components,” said Sam Vanderhoof, CEO of RECYCLE PV SOLAR, in a statement.
“Today, the know-how and the 11 years’ experience of collecting and treating PV waste of PV CYCLE go beyond Europe, as a consequence of our business which acts on a global scale,” said Jan Clyncke, CEO of PV CYCLE, in a statement.
