Description

The collection stage considers removing the PV module wastes from the power stations, excluding the removal of modules from the brackets. The transportation stage involves carrying PV waste components by diesel trucks from power stations to the nearest waste treatment plants. Users of this dataset should ensure they accurately account for the collection and diesel-based transport of PV module waste in their LCA. It is essential to note that the data excludes the energy and processes involved in removing the modules from their mounting structures. Data users should consider system boundaries that include transportation to waste treatment facilities but not de-installation from mounting hardware. Furthermore, users should be aware of the limitations regarding only diesel transport is accounted for, and alternative or additional means of transportation should be treated separately.
