Recyclable Solarpanels

I found this interesting article on innovation in making solar panels more sustainable:

When looking at a life cycle analysis of solar panels, we know that certain rare earth metals must be mined and used to manufacture them. Now a Swedish company has discovered a way to recycle 30%-40%  of these rare elements that are usually waste material in the manufacturing of certain types of solar cells. Interesting to see how solar technologies improve day by day!
