JinkoSolar with SEIA launches PV recycling program

Solar Energy Industries Association

JinkoSolar in partnership with the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and a coalition of other solar companies has launched China’s first PV recycling program. It includes a network of cost-effective recyclers that can responsibly dispose of decommissioned PV modules.

PV system owners now have dedicated resources to help aid in responsible disposal of modules once they reach the end of their life cycle.

JinkoSolar modules recently passed toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) tests.  Products that do not leach toxic materials at levels exceeding regulatory limits are termed TCLP compliant.  TCLP compliant JinkoSolar modules will give system owners more time and flexibility to dispose of the modules.

JinkoSolar has always been keen to ensure that its modules are clean and eco-friendly from cradle to grave,” said Nigel Cockroft, General Manager of JinkoSolar (U.S.) Inc.  “By passing TCLP tests and helping start this recycling framework, JinkoSolar has shown that it is a true leader in environmental responsibility.”
