On 25 June 2018 Reuters reported:
French water and waste group Veolia (VIE.PA) has opened what it says is Europe's first recycling plant for solar panels and aims to build more as thousands of tonnes of ageing solar panels are set to reach the end of their life in coming years. 'This is the first dedicated solar panel recycling plant in Europe, possibly in the world,' Gilles Carsuzaa, head of electronics recycling at Veolia, told reporters.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of science and business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
The new plant in Rousset, southern France, has a contract with solar industry recycling organization PV Cycle France .... Up until now, ageing or broken solar panels have typically been recycled in general-purpose glass recycling facilities, where only their glass and aluminum frames are recovered and their specialty glass is mixed in with other glass. ...
In a 2016 study on solar panel recycling, the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) said that in the long term, building dedicated PV panel recycling plants makes sense. It estimates that recovered materials could be worth $450 million by 2030 and exceed $15 billion by 2050.
