PV CYCLE and RINOVASOL join forces to make PV Panel recycling greener and more profitable by offering global services


The Global Membership Certification issued from the agreement between PV CYCLE and RINOVASOL will offer to its holder located anywhere in the world, the recycling services by PV CYCLE which has already been offered for the last decade as well as access to the Refurbishment Program of RINOVASOL. Treating discarded PV panels will be even more environmentally friendly and cost efficient with the integration of Rinovasol’s refurbishing technology.

“Thanks to our diversified portfolio, RINOVASOL can now also offer economically viable solutions in recycling and treatment in addition to our specialized refurbishment services,” said Josef Gmeiner, CEO of Rinovasol.

After a quality analysis, suitable panels for refurbishment will be repaired and put back on the market by RINOVASOL with a guarantee of up to 10 years, while the remaining panels will follow the standard recycling process of PV CYCLE.

Through the Global Membership Certification, members will not only be able to minimize their recycling costs but can also take advantage of the opportunity to generate profit from their discarded panels that qualify for the refurbishment program.

“For the 10th anniversary of PV CYCLE, adding a true qualitative refurbishment of silicon PV panels to our presence at each corner around the globe is a very beautiful birthday present,” added Jan Clyncke, Managing Director of PV CYCLE. Moreover, Mr. Clyncke said, “We do talk about a cost optimization in turning refurbishable PV Panels into a profitable game changer.”
