Dr Mark Williams-Wynn, R&D Manager from EWaste Africa estimates that PV waste is expected to reach 1.4 million tonnes worldwide by 2030. South Africa has 17 million solar panels installed to date, and most of these will require end-of-life (EOL) management before 2040.

EWaste Africa has recently constructed equipment to be able to recycle solar panels, providing an alternative option for the management of EOL solar panels. Solar panel waste producers are encouraged to contact us to see how we can assist you with the management of your EOL solar panels and inverters.
