Circular supply chains: Reducing pollution and waste through cooperation

10 June 2021, 15:00 - 16:15

Solar energy is one of the most promising forms of renewable energy sources contributing to CO2 reduction targets. There has been an ever-growing deployment of solar photovoltaic panels. However, as the PV market grows, so will its demand for raw materials, as well as its waste output and related pollution. Lifetime extension of products, components and materials, realised via reuse and repair is one of the cornerstones of a circular economy – a concept with vast potential for pollution mitigation.

How to reduce the environmental impact of solar PV modules and how to develop a circular value chain in the solar PV sector? The solution lies in a better collaboration of all actors in the supply chain.

CIRCUSOL organized a session to openly discuss environmental and economic challenges regarding circularity in the solar PV sector. The speakers will shed light on good practices which can inspire also other sectors. 

The event is organised under the umbrella of the EU Green Week 2021.
