The Importance of Solar Panel and PV Management Equipment Recycling

Solar panels contain hazardous materials. If they get into our landfills, our environment and our entire ecosystem will be effected. In our industry, solar panels been considered to be part of the "last mile" of electronic waste that needs to be responsibly recycled.

NREL Calculates Lost Value of Landfilled Plastic in U.S.

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) calculated the energy value of landfilled plastic waste in 2019 was enough to supply 5% of the power used by the country's transportation sector, or 5.5% by the industrial sector.

Battery Recycling Can Lead to a Better Future for Energy Resources

Various business sectors and local and federal government agencies are increasingly looking to lead batteries as a vital energy resource. Lead-acid batteries are nearly 100-percent recycled in a closed-loop system and represent a sustainable resource.

Innovations In End of Life Solar Panel Disposal & Recycling

Estimates are that approximately 8 million metric tons of solar panels will reach their end-of-life in the next nine years. That amount will increase to 80 million within 30 years. Where will they all go?

Innovations in End of Life Lithium-Ion Battery Disposal & Recycling

To make a lithium-ion battery, the components have to be mined and refined. Cathodes are built, and the batteries are manufactured. When those batteries no longer hold a charge, they have to be recycled to reclaim as many metals and plastics as possible.

Environment Preservation & Other Outstanding Benefits of Battery Recycling

Millions of batteries with their hazardous components get dumped in landfills all over the world. Most of these batteries are never properly disposed of and recycled. Battery recycling is the solution to this problem.
