The recycling solution for P.V. modules
The objective of Solarcycle is to offer a solution for the recycling of photovoltaic modules. 
The Solarcycle project is in response to the European Directive DEEE 2012/19/EU. 
This is a partnership between :  
 - RECMA group (industrial)  
 - COMET group (industrial) 
 - ULg, Liège University, GreenMat (research)  
 - ULB, Bruxelles University, Service 4Mat (research)
Our process achieves a minimum of a 95 % recycling rate. 
Our facilities are mainly located in Seraing (Liège); ideally situated near the borders of Germany, France, Luxembourg and Netherlands (please refer to the map below).

From Solar modules to raw materials.
With a network constantly expanding, always open to new partnerships, we receives more and more photovoltaic modules from different locations in Europe.
Involved in Social Economy Solarcycle is able, with the first step of the process, to create low qualifications jobs and reinsert people who have lost  touch with the society. The main objective for us is the employment.
High recycling rate at a minimum of 95%. We even have solutions for the Silicon, with a patented process developped by the University of Liège. We are looking forward to using it for several applications.
