Recycling processes for thin-film solar modules

The consortium has developed recycling processes for thin-film solar modules. It is distinguished between processes which can generally be used and others which are specific for the individual types of modules (CIS, CdTe and a-Si). The processes are developed on a prototypical level and require further refining and adaptation to industrial environment after the end of the project.

The recycling steps include mechanical separation of components of the modules, screening, thermal treatment and chemical processes for dissolution and re-winning of valuable and rare constituents such as indium and gallium.
