A major part of advancing solar panel reuse and recycling solutions is the implementation of international standards. A uniform set of certifiable standards will help to establish a framework for the secondary market and ease buyers’ concerns regarding the quality and safety of used panels as well as the responsible recycling of end-of-life panels.

In this webinar, Mike Easterbrook, R2 Director at Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI) will discuss the all-new R2v3 certification standards for solar panel reuse and recycling.
