Initiative 2 Recycling of Solar Panels

Recycling of Solar Panels

In collaboration with NEDO, Solar Frontier K.K. of our Group is working on the development of CIS solar cell recycling technology. This recycling technology is characterized by the separation and collection of each material. It has been confirmed that more than 90% of rare metals such as indium and selenium contained in the battery can be collected. We will apply this treatment technology to the recycling of crystalline silicon solar panels. In the future, we plan to construct a pilot line at the Kunitomi Plant, where we will study the feasibility of solar panel recycling technology.
