A startup transforms abandoned wind turbines into useful concrete

Posted by in categories: energy, sustainability

Wind turbine blades are recycled into reinforcement fiber that increases the strength and overall durability of concrete.

Wind turbines are great for producing energy but become quite wasteful once their lifetime has expired, as the materials used to construct them simply don’t biodegrade very well.

One company is seeking to do something about that according to a report by electrek published on Thursday.


They have a lifespan of around 20–25 years, and once they are discarded, their massive, glass or carbon fiber-reinforced blades often end up in landfills.
