ACAP Partners With VRX Silica On New Solar Panel Recycling Research

ACAP at UNSW is excited to announce a new industry research partnership between the centre and VRX Silica in Western Australia. The project will be investigating the techno-economic pathways to recycling solar panel glass in Australia.

As moving towards a fully closed-loop and sustainable solar industry is a critical part of the path to achieving net zero emissions, ACAP is pleased to be able to work with an industry-leading partner committed to ensuring that the glass and silica sand industries are environmentally and economically robust.
