Webinar – SOLAR PV RECYCLING IN INDIA, 30th November 2018.


Webinar – SOLAR PV RECYCLING IN INDIA, 30th November, 2018, Time 3.30pm IST


Webinar Content and Description

Solar sector in India has grown rapidly in the last five years. Total installed solar capacity has crossed the 25 GW mark and is expected to reachh 45 GW by end 2020. While installed capacities are on a rise, there is a lack of clarity on end of life treatment of solar systems in India.

As per preliminary estimates, solar PV waste in India is estimated to amound to 8-14 million tonnes by 2050, increasing its share in global PV-waste from 1-2% at present to 12-17% in 2050. At present, majority of central and state government solar tenders require solar power developers to adhere to E-Waste (Management) Rules and Hazardous and Other Wastes (Management and Transboundary Movement) Rules for waste disposal. Disappointingly, these rules do not specify any procedure for collection and recycling of solar PV waste specifically. This poses a serious concern about treatment of PV waste in India.
