Solar Vs. Nuclear
In response to 142974: solar panel waste after, posted by Richard B on Tuesday, 25 December 2018, at 1:08 p.m.
Looks like the article may have been written by someone on the payroll of the nuclear lobby. The article mentions one cleanup of a bankrupt solar company of $500,000 like it's a big deal. That's chicken feed to a multi-million dollar company. The article tries to emphasize how long it will take to recycle waste by 2020; 19 years. But it's at least doable. They mention how safe it is to store nuclear waste in drums, but fail to mention how many drums are leaking at waste sites and how many drums are sitting around nuclear power plants with no place to take them. They also fail to mention that nuclear waste has a 10,000 year half life. The article is soft core propaganda meant to coyly influence people negatively against solar and think favorably of nuclear.
Likely, some of the information is true. But I feel certain that there are people who are tying to plan for the future recycling of solar panels. What I don't know, is how recyclable are lithium batteries?
