Problem Addressed

The issues with the current technology are the toxic environmental impact of Cd and Te, which are widely used in solar cells, and the multiple steps required in  the present recycling methods. The concern of Cd and Te toxicity pressures manufacturers to recycle spent solar cells and manufacturing waste. The proposed AE recycling of CdTe solar cells selectively dissolves the compound semiconductor for the reclamation of Cd and Te that are suitable for reentry into the CdTe manufacturing stream.
