[Beringen, 05/10/2023] - Out of Use, a leading company in the circular economy, is proud to announce the launch of a new initiative aimed at reusing discarded solar panels. The project, named "PV2" aims to give these panels a second life, contributing to environmental protection and CO2 reduction.


With the growing popularity of solar energy, we are witnessing an increasing demand for the replacement of old solar panels with more efficient models. Out of Use recognizes the value even in discarded solar panels and has invested in specialized testing equipment to assess their viability.

The reusable solar panels that pass the testing process are carefully refurbished and given a second chance to generate clean energy. This not only extends the lifespan of the panels but also contributes to reducing the environmental impact of the solar energy sector by limiting the production of new panels.

Panels that are not suitable for reuse are recycled responsibly and in an environmentally friendly manner, allowing for the recovery of valuable materials and minimizing waste. Out of Use is known for its commitment to the circular economy, particularly in the areas of IT equipment and electric vehicle batteries. With the PV2 initiative, the company continues its mission to reduce waste, create value for its customers, and have a positive impact on the environment.

"This project illustrates our ongoing efforts to further promote the circular economy," says Mark Adriaenssens, CEO of Out of Use."We are determined to extend not only the lifespan of IT and electronic equipment but also that of solar panels. This contributes to a more sustainable future and underscores our commitment to reducing CO2 emissions."

Out of Use looks forward to the further rollout of the PV2 project and remains dedicated to innovation and sustainability in the circular economy.
