Rapid Solutions International is suitable to safely reclaim the following PV outfit
- PV modules( mono or polycrystalline, thin-film, subsoil-type, etc.)
- Inverters or microinverters
- Racking outfits or trackers
Recycling a solar panel can be broken down into three introductory way
- Remove the frame and junction box (a mechanical process)
- Separate the glass from the silicon wafer (a thermal, mechanical, or chemical process)
- Separate and purify the silicon and colorful essence (a chemical and electrical process)
First, solar panels consist of layers of materials such as glass, silicon, and metals. These materials can be broken down and separated into their individual components through a process called mechanical recycling. During this process, the solar panels are crushed, shredded, and sorted into different categories of materials, such as metal, glass, and plastics.
Once the materials have been separated, they can then be sent to specialized recycling facilities that can use them to create new products. For example, the glass from solar panels can be reused to make new glass products, while silicon and metals can be used to create new solar cells and other electronic components.
In addition to mechanical recycling, there are also chemical recycling processes that can be used to extract valuable materials from solar panels. For example, some companies are working on developing new technologies that can extract high-purity silicon from used solar panels, which can then be used to create new solar cells.
Ultimately, the key to a successful solar panel recycling program is to design and manufacture solar panels with end-of-life recycling in mind. By using easily recyclable materials and designing solar panels that can be easily disassembled, manufacturers can help ensure that their products can be recycled and reused for years to come.
