Control of Life-Cycle Emissions from Crystalline Silicon Solar Cell Manufacturing

M. De Wild-Scholten, M. Schottler, B. Schlüter
Reduction of life-cycle emissions are needed to improve the environmental profile of silicon photovoltaics. Most emissions are indirect via upstream processes and can be reduced for example by lowering the energy consumption for silicon feedstock and wafer production. The direct emissions from solar cell manufacturing must be reduced by implementing abatement strategies.
