Mitsubishi Chemical Group’s subsidiary, Shinryo, has pioneered a groundbreaking technology that recycles glass and metals from solar panels, potentially reducing recycling costs by 20% to 30%. The innovation involves converting sealant into gas at high temperatures, facilitating the recovery of materials like glass, silver, copper, and aluminum. Recovered glass will be repurposed for glass fiber insulation, while metals will be recycled for various applications, enabling about 99% of panel material to be reused. This development aligns with Japan’s commitment to sustainable renewable energy solutions amid surging waste from solar panels.
