Reclaim PV Recycling has secured development approval to establish Australia’s first national solar panel recycling facility in Lonsdale, Adelaide.
Reclaim PV has committed to a long-term lease, marking a significant milestone in the establishment of a solar panel recovery and recycling network, with further facilities to be established in the other major metropolitan areas in the next one to two years.
Reclaim PV is simultaneously securing environmental licenses to conduct full scale recycling operations at an initial rate of 70,000 panels per annum, and is putting the call out for end-of-life solar panels from anywhere in Australia.
According to Reclaim PV Director Clive Fleming, the company already has circa 70,000 panels partly processed at its Lonsdale site and its leased warehouse in Brisbane.
“This is an exciting time for Reclaim PV and the PV industry, which is in need of a nation-wide approach to managing the replacement and recycling of faulty, non-performing and end-of-life solar panels,” he said.
