On photovoltaic equipment waste

On photovoltaic equipment waste

The Member States of the European Union are for some very involved in the development of a sustainable development strategy based on photovoltaic. However, there is no waste management plan for photovoltaic modules, knowing that their life expectancy is estimated to be about thirty years. The acceleration of the transition to sustainable development must necessarily be accompanied by a full account of the whole chain of production, use and final management of the product.

Has the Commission anticipated in its waste management the relatively fast end of life and the treatment of photovoltaic equipment and modules?
