EUPVSEC 2023: Join PHOTORAMA and EPRI’s session 

On the 19th of September in Lisbon, PHOTORAMA will host a session during the 40th annual conference of the PV solar industry, EUPVSEC, featuring work from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI).

The EU PVSEC is one of the biggest events of the year for research and development on PV solar energy. Running for 40 years, EUPVSEC is a real hub of ideas for experts in the field, bringing together science and industry.  


PHOTORAMA and EPRI’s session is titled “Recycling is Getting Ready for PV – Latest News from PHOTORAMA and EPRI”. The parallel session will be a deep dive into technological innovations along the entire high-value recycling process developed in PHOTORAMA (EU) as well as present results from a recent LCI of new recycling technologies released this year by EPRI1  and accompanying policy implications in developing a circular model in the PV value chain. The session will feature: 

  • The cutting-edge research and very first results of PHOTORAMA on various technologies for high-value recycling of crystalline-silicon (c-Si) and thin films CI(G)S End of Life (EoL) modules including delamination and metal recovery processes. 
  • Results from a recent Life Cycle Inventory (LCI) of new recycling technologies released this year.  
  • Presentation and discussion on policy implications for developing high-value recycling. 


The following speakers will take the floor:   

  • Dr. Claire Agraffeil: Project Manager & Coordinator of PHOTORAMA at French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, CEA 
  • Dr. Wolfram Palitzsch: CEO & Founder at LuxChemTech 
  • Dr. Karsten Wambach: Deputy Managing Director at bifa Umweltinstitut GmbH 
  • Dr. Goril Jahrsengene:Research Scientist at SINTEF Industry 
  • Dr. Charly Lemoine; Research Scientist at French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, CEA 
  • Aitor Apraiz Arenaza: R&D Engineer at Mondragon Assembly 

When and Where?  

19th September 10:30-12:00h at EUPVSEC 2023 in Lisbon.
