FORESi’s
specific objectives

Develop and demonstrate new PV logistics collection, reuse and repair processes at EU level.

Demonstrate a fully automated dismantling machine and a novel sustainable chemical process for the recycling of end-of-life PV modules with a target recovery rate of at least 95%.

Demonstrate at industrial scale a new process for purifying silicon from various waste materials to produce High Pure Monocrystalline Silicon.

Demonstrate the circularity potential of the PV value chain by producing new solar cells with up to 15% upcycled silicon from end-of-life PV modules.

Evaluate and define the optimal parameters to achieve the highest economic, technical, social and environmental impact along the recycling value chain.

Provide a design for a turnkey PV recycling factory together with EU policy recommendations to increase the sustainability and future resilience of the European silicon PV value chain.

Ensure the long-term scale-up of FORESi innovations through realistic exploitation strategies, inter-cluster collaboration and stakeholder engagement.
