Offshore wind firm to work with researchers on recycling glass fibers to tackle blade waste

Posted by in category: sustainability

According to the university, the system focuses on the “thermal recovery and post-treatment of glass fibres” from glass-reinforced polymer composite scrap, with the end result “near-virgin quality glass fibres.” The idea is that, using this system, the composite waste could be re-used.

The aim is to scale-up and commercialize a process developed by team at the University of Strathclyde, in Scotland.
