Recovery of Silicon and other materials from End-of-Life Photovoltaic Panels

The Resielp project (Recovery of Silicon and othermaterials from End-of-Life Photovoltaic Panels) aims to recover secondary raw materials from the recycling treatment of photovoltaic panels at the end of life. The project is funded by the KIC Raw Materials (Knowledge Innovation Community) and coordinated by the French CEA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives). Resielp sees the participation of Italy with ENEA (National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development), UNPD (University of Padua), CETMA (European Research Centre for Technology, Design and Materials), the companies ITO and TREEE. The Austrian consultancy firm Proko and the Hungarian Bay Zoltan (non-profit research companies) are also involved. In 2020, a pilot plant was built in Italy in the TREEE plant to recover silicon, silver, copper, aluminium and glass from photovoltaic panels.
