Recycling of Solar Panels Mission is not Impossible
But what about Scam Solar Energy Failures?
I briefly look at this concern below.
This Energy Treatise of Solar and Wind and Battery looks at Australian and American viewpoints giving a significant must read and must watch dynamic range viewpoints.
However, first, we need to watch this important video about reason and motive of why ‘Solar Panel’ sun energy is a ‘Renewable Energy’ asset.
Warren Barnsley writing on Technology on behalf of Seven News raised a valid important concern, a question titled, “What happens to solar panels after they die?”
“It’s one of the few drawbacks of solar power – solar panels have a life of approximately 10 to 30 years after which they usually end up in landfill.” (i)
Allan Ivarsson comments… less than thirty years life for Solar Panels is too expensive for Aussie Battlers homeowners. This quality of life of Solar Panels needs more exploration, but that is another story for another time.
“It is estimated about 100,000 tones of the product could end up in dumps around Australia over the next decade – and a million tonnes during the 2040’s – amid the ongoing shift to renewable energy.” (i)
A.I. comments… Not even one solar panel, definitely not even one ton of panels must be in landfill. Pollution of our land is not acceptable behaviour, not now, not ever.
“Some governments in Australia have been seeking to address the problem, with Victoria in 2019 banning the dumping of solar panels into landfill.” (i)
A.I. comments… That is good news, Victoria made the right decision in 2019.
Anyone with commonsense knows it is not acceptable to pollute the planet landfill with Wind Turbine Blades and Solar Panels.
We have Waste Management Highly Skilled Expertise to deal with the problem of waste concerns.
“… it’s a big issue”, according to waste management expert Pablo Ribeiro Dias.” (i)
“Landfilling panels has two major implications,” Ribeiro Dias, a PhD in engineering, told 7News.com.au.” (i)
“The first one is that panels are made to last a long time and be safe for the environment while in operation. But once you landfill the panels and break them, you start creating the possibility of releasing toxic components contained therein.” (i)
“Most panels use a lead-tin solder and thus lead can end up contaminating the environment if not properly recycled or contained.” (i)
A.I. comments… For society it is important that the cost of panels is lowered and the quality life of panels is lengthened past thirty years, target longevity of sixty years. Can technology achieve that? If not yet, they can down-the-track.
“The second implication is that a solar panel has a lot of valuable materials that could go back to the economy if panels are properly recycled – examples are copper, aluminium and silver.” (i)
A.I. comments… this is very encouraging understanding focused on protection of our planet from pollution.
Corporation Project Objectives for Recycling of Solar Panels.
“One Australian company believes it not only has the solution but can profit from it.” (i)
A.I. comments… If Companies can make a Profit from ‘Waste Recycle Management’, go for it, to keep our planet clean from pollution. Recycle of extracted materials is good common-sense.
“The relatively new Solar Recovery Corporation (SRC) is shipping a $3.2 million piece of equipment from Europe designed to extract materials from solar panels for recycling.” (i)
A.I. comments… This objective is a good process. But what about the materials they don’t need. What happens to those materials? I trust not landfill. A question to another story checkout down the track.
The Slides below from Seven News, sums up the mission plans of this ‘Solar Recovery Corporation’ (SRC). We do not want to lose this historically important news report. It must stay in access to the public. We must not lose sight of the important eternal objective of ‘Recycling Solar Panels’ around the planet. To do less is irresponsible and negligent.

Previously Question… “But what about the materials they don’t need. What happens to those materials? I trust not landfill.”
This next video answers that question, even the ‘Glass’ can be recycled.
As I explored several ‘Recycling of Solar Panel’ videos published previously, I observed that very few people have bothered to watch videos on ‘Recycling of Solar Panel’ essential objectives to protect our planet from pollution landfill.
Even ‘Panic Stricken Climate Change Activists’ with ‘Green’ mentality are more concerned with panic over global warming than about priority objectives like stopping a ‘Nuclear Winter’ by banning all ‘Nuclear Weapons’ and stopping pollution of our planet on land and water and stopping wrong thinking ‘Renewable Energy’ clearing thousands of acres of land destroying wildlife and harming sea life by creating ‘Wind Farms’ on land and sea which kill millions of essential birds.
We need to save our planet by replanting trees and creating Wildlife Corridors and Habitats in much the same way they once existed. To survive we need to protect the essential gases CO2 & Oxygen.

Believe it or Not Marketing
A.I. comments… The push to get batteries for off the Grid use has one serious flaw, questions that needs answering.
There is massive increase in battery use for both Solar Power and Electronic Cars using batteries. Problem is flammable Lithium Batteries are being used, which should be banned from use. When are alternative safer batteries going to replace Lithium use across the board?
Second question, “What is happening to all batteries when they expire in use? Where is the recycling plan? Where is the Waste Management Plan? Where I live in NSW country, I have not seen any advertised ‘Waste Management Depot’ for receipt of dead batteries large and small.
Battery Energy Management & Waste Management, to be explored further…
But before we move forward into other serious concerns, watch this essential must view video… self-education is the key to becoming smarter than clever and essentially more dynamic in education.
Unjust Unfair Losses by buyers of ‘Solar Panels’.
A.I. comments… Too many Solar Panel Systems are failing to do what they are claimed can be achieved. People are losing money and experiencing persistent frustration and disappointment. Many of the so-called experts are not that good and are incompetent in needed skills. Hence, naturally people feel ripped of by financial loses in investment of using ‘Solar Energy’.
Watch these videos for more insight…
In Australia 800,000 failed Solar Systems out of 2.6 million installations, tells us that accreditation skills are weak and undisciplined in essential needed high level skills performance. Never deal with salespersons at the door or on the phone. The risk is high you will be ripped off by shonky individuals. Rebates by Governments can be an illusion when quoted budget costs are understated by surprise increase charges. When Solar Energy performance fails, electricity bill charges increase again back to before Solar Panels were installed.
Wind Power Turbine disgraceful Destruction of Environment
“I have justifiably always opposed ‘Wind Turbines’ but what if a new design void of blades is created that changes my resistant opposition to exploring a new wiser technology?”
On our ‘Bird Sanctuary’ ‘Wildlife Corridor’ Property, killers of birds like ‘Wind Turbines’ and ‘Cats’ are banned.

Solar Energy is still the best Choice
More information about Nuclear Weapons & Explosions is available in my previous work. I shall organize this insight under one umbrella soon.
