Borosil Renewables mulling solar module recycling


Borosil Renewables Ltd., an Indian multinational solar glass manufacturer, intends to enter into solar module recycling. It aims to establish industry best practices for extracting and utilizing materials from end-of-life PV modules.

Borosil Renewables has integrated solar glass manufacturing operations in India and Europe. It has a 1,000 tons per day (tpd) solar glass facility in India, which can supply for 6 GW of solar module production per year. The capacity in Europe is 350 tons per day, equivalent to 2 GW. 

“With more than a decade of presence in the solar industry and a deep-rooted relationship with all the important Indian and global stakeholders like solar module manufacturers, solar project developers, policymakers, etc., we firmly believe that we are well-placed to achieve success in this area. We look forward to launching this initiative with the right technology partners who are experts in the domain to integrate this technology into our manufacturing capabilities,” said Pradeep Kheruka, executive chairman of Borosil Renewables Ltd.

Borosil Renewables is looking for technology partners with an established environment-friendly solar module recycling process to recover maximum materials, including precious metals (silver) and silicon, in addition to glass, aluminum, copper, etc. The technology should have a recycling efficiency of more than 95%.
