The materials of dead solar panels can be recycled into useful products. It is possible, through innovative technologies still being developed, that 90 percent of the material recovered from solar panels can be recycled into useful products. Solar panels comprise metals and glass, which, if they were separated and captured, could be reused in the manufacture of other products. Silicon is the main material used in manufacturing solar panels and plays the role of a semiconductor that facilitates the absorption and conversion of sunlight into electricity. Silicon is also the most valuable component of each solar panel which can be recycled in order to use it in new solar panels.
