Photovoltaic modules are composed by silicon, glass, copper and aluminium.
Once separated, they are recyclable and usable for the creation of new modules or other products. FuturaSun is a member of PVCycle in Italy and in Germany.
The overall photovoltaic plant Life-cycle assessment (LCA) is now under two years almost everywhere in Europe, and even less in sunnier areas in Africa. This indicates that the overall environmental impact, over the expected plant life expectancy of 25 years, is extremely positive.
