Eco-Solar - Optimising the eco-efficiency in the photovoltaic value chain.

Eco-Solar objective is to maximise the resource productivity and reduce pollution in photovoltaic module production.

Eco-Solar minimises use of critical resources like energy, water, chemicals, aluminium, silver and lead, while simultaneously maximising recycling possibilities by introducing design for recovery, repair, reuse and recycling in the PV value chain. Integrated Eco-Solar provides significantly improved eco-efficiency and environmental relief potential. The total ecological benefit achieved for monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic modules is 45 % and for multicrystalline photovoltaic modules is 42%, including cost savings of 9% and a carbon footprint reduction by 17-22%.
