Solar Frontier has become the latest company to become a member of European photovoltaics module recycling organization, PV Cycle. By joining the mission, Solar Frontier takes responsibility for its CIS modules throughout their entire lifecycle, committing itself to creating economical and ecological solar energy solutions.
“Solar Frontier is dedicated to offering the most economical and ecological solar energy solutions in the world. As a leading manufacturer of CIS solar modules, it is only natural to think about what will happen to our products when they reach the end of their lifecycle. We look forward to taking part in the drive toward cleaner and more sustainable solar energy”, said Wolfgang Lange, managing director of Solar Frontier Europe.
In addition to this news, Solar Frontier’s parent company, Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K., has announced its partnership with Kitakyushu City to build Japan’s first solar power system recycling facility. Showa Shell, which has been developing technologies for recycling solar modules since 2000, will be co-developing new processes to recycle solar panels over the next five years.
