ReSiLEX Reducing the EU dependence on critical raw materials for solar panel production

EU Funding

RESiLEX aims to improve the resilience and sustainability of the entire Silicon value chain in the EU. Resilient Enhancement for the Silicon Industry Leveraging the European matrix is a Horizon Europe project that has the main aim of improving the resilience and sustainability of critical raw material value chain in Europe. In order to reach this result, the project aims at demonstrating 8 industry-driven technological and business innovative solutions covering the full Silicon value chain. The core activity of RESiLEX is to strengthen each part of the Silicon value chain, through the technological improvement of all its processes, from the extraction and transformation of the raw material up to the optimization and recycling of PV modules, and the reuse of Silicon for Lion Batteries.
