recycling of silicon

Recycling of silicon based PV modules

Students collaborate to the creation of a toolkit about recycling of silicon based on PV modules. They tested a simple and effective method to assembly and disassembly a PV mini-module in order to reuse the components inside of it, such as Silicon, which is the main material in the panel. This method can be replicated at school, since it uses a very common object: a flat iron.
