Accelerating Wind Turbine Blade Circularity

Published on 25 May 2020


The objective of this report is to present the state-of-play in the recycling of composites used in wind turbines blades. Notably, the report: describes wind turbine blade structure and material composition; highlights the expected volumes of composite waste, including wind turbine blade waste;maps the existing regulations governing composite waste in Europe; describes the existing recycling and recovery technologies for treating composite waste as well as innovative applications for using composite waste; and provides recommendations for research and innovation to further enhance the circularity of wind turbine blades, including new materials and design for recycling.
