Raw material up-cycling for circular PV

Project description

A new way to valorise raw materials from photovoltaic waste

Photovoltaics (PV) represent a solution for carbon emissions reduction and mitigating climate change effects. However, the production of PV modules, including their high-value raw materials such as silicon and silver, is associated with high energy consumption and significant CO2 emissions. The French deep tech start-up ROSI aims to render PV into a circular economy by revalorising the wasted raw materials along the value chain. The EU-funded Ramp-PV project will propose an industrialised innovation consisting of an environmentally friendly and cost-effective process to revalorise highly pure silicon and silver. For silicon in particular, a strategic European raw material, several reuse routes into strategic industries, such as PV, electronics and battery storage, will be realised.
