A new, $2,5 million solar panel recycling pilot will be the first of its kind in Australia, according to the Queensland government.

The new initiative will see thousands of solar panels from the state’s homes, businesses, and solar farms be recycled at the end of the product’s life and reused for parts. The recycling pilot will also collect information that will help find gaps in Queensland’s recovery and processing.

“With up to five locations in metro and regional Queensland set to host the pilot, we expect to see a significant uplift in opportunity to create new jobs in recovery and processing activities,” said energy minister Mick de Brenni.

“Through its $1 billion solar panel manufacturing plan, the Albanese Government has provided the start of the line for solar panels, while today’s announcement by the Miles Government means we provide an end-of-life plan.”
