The Renewable Energy Hour 01-13-14 PV Toxics
Listen to the podcast of Jeff and Doug and their guest Sheila Davis from the January 13th show, for a discussion on the environmental impacts of PV manufacture and disposal. What toxics are byproducts of PV mfr. What toxics are actually embodied into the pv and are an issue for final disposal? Are different types of PV more or less impactful? Different companies? Different states or countries? Sheila is the executive director of The Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition, which has been monitoring and lobbying for positive policies on the waste stream created in the mfr and disposal of electronics for the past 30 years and has been monitoring such for PV for the past 4.
