Seamless Solar Technology
New solar technology must balance three conditions: it must look good, be cost-effective, and installed swiftly. At Mitrex, they have developed Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) technology that meets all three challenging requirements. Mitrex's solar solutions transform walls and balcony railings into solar panels, extending a building’s energy-generating potential from the rooftops down to the vertical walls. Both the cladding and railings look good while generating clean, green power and in this way, allows architects, facade designers, building owners, and investors the opportunity to design-in and profit from solar technology without compromising their design vision.
Solar Panel Recycling Processes
Mitrex uses two types of solar technology: silicon and thin-film photovoltaics. These types can both be recycled through different industrial processes. Currently, silicon-based panels are more common, so the impact of recycling these panels is drastic, though the value of recycling thin-film-based cells is also important as their use becomes more common.
