Module recycling technology Head start in the market

Solar modules consist of a variety of products and materials, including glass, aluminium and silicon-based solar cells. If solar modules are dismantled and simply disposed of, not only is a lot of waste. Many raw materials are also lost and are no longer available for individual use.

Overlapping process in recycling solar modules

The Rinovasol company group has developed an innovative technological process in the recycling of solar modules across all steps to achieve a recycling rate of almost 100 percent of the components of a solar module. Rinovasol has thus positioned itself in the middle of the circular economy. The aim is to make the important raw materials from the solar modules, that are no longer used, usable for further industrial use. The technology is based on the extensive industrial feeding of solar modules, knocking free the individual components of a module and sorting the pure fractions of the materials.

Rinovasol Recycling Services GmbH is responsible for the proper recycling of the solar modules in accordance with the respective legal basis. Recycling is carried out with the help of a hammer mill, which completely breaks down solar modules into their basic components. This means that the individual components can be removed in the best possible way and returned to the economic cycle.
