The solar cell has been in the spotlight as new renewable energy. Considering its life expectancy, a large quantity of the spent module will be produced after 2020, so many studies are being conducted on the recovery of valuable resources from the spent photovoltaic module. In particular, there are not many studied conducted on the photovoltaic robbin recovered from the spent photovoltaic module. Therefore, in this study, experiments were conducted to verify the oxidation behaviors in the coating layer of the photovoltaic ribbon recovered from the spent photovoltaic module. The oxidation behaviors were observed for 24 hours at the temperature of 100°C, 300°C, 500°C and 700°C using TGA, and the oxide layer formation and the component change in respective sections were analyzed using SEM and EDC according to the holding time of 1hr, 2hrs, 4hrs and 8hrs at the temperature of 500°C showing the most distinctive oxidation behavior.
