Local companies are keen on investment in solar panel recycling plants under the flagship EEC scheme to capitalise on growth of solar panel installation in Thailand.

Local companies are keen on investment in solar panel recycling plants under the flagship Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) scheme to capitalise on growth of solar panel installation in Thailand.
Solar panels contain many different silicon cells -- thin film solar cells and crystalline silicon solar cells -- as well as cadmium telluride, which is needed for recycling. The Industrial Works Department projects the volume of solar panels expiring in 5-10 years will reach 500,000 tonnes or 18 million solar panels. 
Thongchai Chawalitpichaet, Director-General of the department, said the pilot location for solar panel recycling plants will be in Chachoengsao, as some local investors have allocated capital and land plots there.
