Recycling of silver from CIGS solar cells
The project aims at developing and verifying a method for recycling silver from manufacturing residues of CIGS solar cells and scraped CIGS solar cells. Midsummer AB develops and manufactures equipment for the production of CIGS (Copper-Indium-Gallium-Selenium) solar cells on the surface of which is an electrical wire grid of silver. The recovery of silver provides a more sustainable resource and waste management for the solar cells in a lifecycle perspective.
