  • Solar panel silicon recovery methods tested

    A three-step chemical process could successfully recover high-purity silicon from recycled photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, new tests show. The scientists behind the research say that recycling not only helps the PV industry meet regulatory requirements, but also reduces pressure on demand for raw materials. Since 2014, the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive1 has required ...

  • Future Solar Panels

    The solar panels we see tend to be rigid and black. Organic photovoltaic technology, by contrast, enables more translucent and more flexible solar panels in a range of colours to be manufactured. But this technology needs to meet certain requirements if it is to be accepted on the market: greater efficiency, longer duration and low production cost. So this research has set out “to analyse ...

  • IBM’s greener way to reuse silicon

    US computer and electronics manufacturer IBM claims to have developed a greener method for recycling silicon wasted during the manufacture of computer chips. In making microprocessors and other computer chips, circuitry is imprinted on discs of silicon known as wafers which are then cut into the hundreds of tiny pieces that become the chips. Given that chips must be essentially flawless, ...

  • New solar panel technology stylish and sustainable

    The new cell technology combines nanoparticles and organic dyes that can be produced in any number of colors and designs. The key component of the new modules is an organic dye which in combination with nanoparticles converts sunlight into electricity. Due to the small size of the nanoparticles, the modules are semi-transparent. This aspect makes them well suited for façade integration. The new ...
