JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. has joined PV CYCLE's European association for voluntary take-back and recycling of photovoltaic modules. By doing so, JinkoSolar joins more than 70 companies in an international effort to establish a network of solar module collection points by 2015.
PV CYCLE is currently setting up collection points across Europe where installers and citizens will be able to dispose of worn-out modules. End-of-life modules will be separated into crystalline and thin-film modules and taken to a PV CYCLE recycling center, where they will be sorted by their product number and manufacturer and then weighed before being disassembled into their main components and recycled. The recycling program is financed by the member companies.
