The ReSi-Norm project aims to develop a comprehensive approach to solar module recycling that covers all factors along the recycling process.
To this end existing processes and concepts will be validated and further developed with regard to efficiency and source reduction. Special consideration is given to existing results and findings from current national or European programs and development activities.
A review of current processes for the disposal of solar modules will be carried out within the scope of the project. Based on this, possible sorting processes and different recycling scenarios for end-of-life PV modules will be developed. In addition, an effective recycling process will be developed, tested and validated as a standard procedure and evaluated according to economic, energetic and ecological aspects.
Furthermore, standard criteria for ecological and sustainable recycling processes as well as requirement catalogs for the recovered recycling materials are to be established. Existing recycling processes are to be evaluated and recycling rates standardized in order to achieve better comparability.
