During the past 25 years there has been a rapid expansion in the deployment of photovoltaic (PV) systems throughout Europe. There is no sign that this growth is abating. Early PV systems are now coming to the end of their working lives - a big disposal challenge that will increase in the coming years. Our mission is to develop an industrial scale system to recovery and reuse of all materials from end of life silicon-based photovoltaic modules.
