Photovoltaics in the Circular Economy

7th June 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm BST


The circular economy is increasingly important to the photovoltaics industry and with ambitious plans for global PV installation to achieve Net Zero, is undoubtably set to drive and set challenges for research in PV. This FREE webinar focusses on current and future PV recycling strategies (for silicon, CadTel and next generation PV), featuring key industry players and bringing insight from researchers from the USA, where solar assets are significantly more mature than in the UK.
