Infographic -- Solar PV recycling: Market overview

07 May 2021 Martina Assereto

The success of solar in terms of how quickly the technology has been adopted and installed in large volumes is now beginning to become a challenge. As the number of solar PV retirements continue to increase over the next decades, PV recycling is increasingly becoming an important conversation. Solar industry participants along with market players in adjacent industries are increasingly focused on how best to ensure solar PV modules are optimally recycled. Policy, industry investment in module recycling at scale along with research into how recycled materials can be re-used will be key requirements in the next few years.

Some of the key questions answered in the report are outlined below.

  • How much PV capacity will retire by 2050?
  • How much PV module waste is expected to be produced?
  • Which countries will account for the majority of solar module waste production?
  • What is the value of the materials recovered from PV recycling?
  • Who are the main PV recycling players?
