CEO of PV CYCLE aisbl
The year 2020 has been remarkable in many ways. The COVID-19 pandemic has undermined many sectors and has caused a change in behavior that is undeniably closer to the environment. Interest in the circular economy has grown and shall remain a major trend in the future. Evidenced by the increasing curve of installed photovoltaic installations, the steadily increasing amounts of collected and treated PV Panels the past years, stagnated a bit by the pandemic.
Our determination has not been affected by the pandemic and thanks to the flexibility and involvement of the PV CYCLE teams in serving the interests of our members, both in terms of treatment of end-of-life photovoltaic equipment and servicing WEEE compliance.
While the way of working has obviously questioned our way of working in the course of the year, the lessons learned shall help us for digitalizing our services much more in the future, the commitment of all our team members has been reinforced.
With more than 45,000 tons collected since the start of its activities, PV CYCLE benefits from the unparalleled experience, essential to cope with the PV waste flows expected before 2030 for which the members of our team are already looking for the most suitable solutions both in the regulated European environment and the non-regulated global landscape where the 13 years of experience of PV CYCLE, a pioneer in the sector, will be beneficial for the industry.
I thank the staff of our teams for their efforts to improve the level of excellence of the PV CYCLE organization and I am proud to support them in the many challenges we will face in the coming years.
