Solar panel waste management and recycling.

90 million solar panels are already installed in Australia. Where will they go?

In Australia, one in four households have rooftop solar, and large utility scale installations are constantly being connected to the grid. Solar systems installed by early adopters of the technology are ageing, and many owners will often find it is more cost effective to upgrade their systems to a newer, more powerful one. Often solar panels fail while others are damaged by storms, fire or even during transportation and installation. Solar panel recycling is a sustainable alternative to landfill. 

We are leading the way in solar panel recycling in Australia and it is our aim to stop solar panels from entering landfill. 

There are numerous economic and environmental benefits to solar panel recycling. Not only does it prevent toxic leachates from entering soil and groundwater,  the  recovered materials can be reused, supporting local manufacturers by improving efficiency and increasing security of future supply.
