Advances Keep Coming in Solar Recycling

October 19, 2022

I quibble with the framing of. the video, which is that solar panels represent some kind of unique challenge for recycling. We are in an era where E-waste is going to be of primary concern – with solar representing about 10 percent of that by 2050.

That said, new techniques for recycling panels keep springing up, testimony to the huge momentum that this industry has.

    “One thing that is generally overlooked is that solar panels have a limited lifespan.”

    Pardon me while I roll my eyes.

    Everything that does anything useful has a limited lifespan. I know she has to frame the story she is presenting, but the idea that, durr, solar panels were expected to last forever is just a painful reminder how much of her audience don’t have a clue how the world works. (Well, food comes from grocery stores and all that.)
