Abstract: Several new EU-directives trend clearly to waste avoidance, recycling and eco-design requirements. The EU is favoring a strategy for sustainable product development and high value reuse and recycling solutions to achieve lower energy pay back times and save resources by reuse and recycling of silicon wafer, silicon and other material. Pure mass recovery quotas as set today in the present regulations will not be sufficient any longer. Better environmentally benign solutions will be encouraged by the authorities and end users. Even today several financing organisations ask for the future waste treatment costs of PV installations.
