SOLARCYCLE, a pioneering solar recycling company, is poised to inaugurate its new headquarters in Mesa, Arizona, a move that is expected to generate more than 100 employment opportunities within the local community. The state-of-the-art facility will house a specialized research laboratory dedicated to advancing the firm's proprietary recycling technologies, led by a team of scientists and engineers.
Initially targeting an annual recycling capacity of 250,000 solar panels, the Mesa facility aims to scale up to one million panels per year to address the growing demand in the solar industry for sustainable recycling solutions and circular supply chain services.
To support its expansion, SOLARCYCLE intends to fill various roles in Mesa, including positions in production, engineering, operations, IT, finance, sales and marketing, and management. Prospective applicants can explore career openings through the company's dedicated careers page.
SOLARCYCLE's innovative technology enables the recovery of up to 95% of the value from recycled panels, extracting materials such as silver, silicon, copper, aluminum, and glass. These high-purity materials are reintegrated into the domestic supply chain. The newly established research and development laboratory in Mesa will further enhance the material extraction process, aiming for zero waste and maximizing the value derived from decommissioned panels.
Entering its second year of operations, SOLARCYCLE has expanded its national presence through significant contracts with industry leaders, including AES, EDF Renewables North America, EDP Renewables North America, Greenbacker, Ørsted, Silicon Ranch, and Sunrun. The company's inaugural facility commenced operations in Odessa, Texas, in 2022.
Dedicated to safety and environmental stewardship, SOLARCYCLE adheres to stringent standards set by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). The company holds active certifications under ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001, underscoring its commitment to responsible recycling practices and the protection of workers, communities, and the environment.
Looking forward, SOLARCYCLE has plans to unveil additional facilities across the United States in 2024, further solidifying its position as a leader in sustainable solar recycling solutions.
