Some lines of current affairs 23 March 2024 news

  • A recent study, released on March 20, predicts that India could accumulate 600 kilotons of solar waste by 2030, equivalent to filling 720 Olympic-sized swimming pools. This study, titled “Enabling a Circular Economy in India’s Solar Industry: Assessing the Solar Waste Quantum,” was conducted by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and the independent think tank Council on Energy, Environment, and Water (CEEW). It highlights that approximately 67% of this waste will originate from five states: Rajasthan, Gujarat, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Tamil Nadu. India’s current solar capacity, standing at 66.7 GW by FY 2023, has already produced around 100 kilotonnes of waste, expected to rise to 340 kilotonnes by 2030. Among this waste, there will be approximately 10 kilotonnes of silicon, 12-18 tonnes of silver, and 16 tonnes of cadmium and tellurium, crucial minerals for India. Recycling solar waste to reclaim these materials could reduce import reliance and enhance India’s mineral security. The study forecasts that solar waste will escalate to about 19,000 kilotonnes by 2050, with 77% originating from new capacities.
