A new era of photovoltaik recycling
As a technology company, FLAXRES has set itself the task to revolutionize the recycling of composite materials. With a process based on high-intensity light pulses, photovoltaic modules can be separated into their main fractions. Thanks to the innovative method, the components obtained are of high quality and can be profitably returned to the material cycle.
Without any chemicals
Reasons to think about it
Industrialized countries already produce up to 50 million tons of electronic waste annually. Previous recycling methods do not offer any cost-efficient, holistic recycling options. Therefore, FLAXRES has developed a new recycling process that fully recovers all materials without the use of chemicals and allows for the return the materials to production – A new standard in the recycling of photovoltaics.
The number of defective photovoltaic modules or those that have been taken out of service as a result of so-called “repowering” has risen drastically by now. In Germany alone, around 400,000 tons are forecasted for 2030, which equates to approximately 20 million modules. The high quality of the materials after the separation process by FLAXRES enables a genuine and economically lucrative circular economy, in contrast to the currently predominant “downcycling” by the shredding and subsequent sorting of the photovoltaic modules.
