Turning wind turbines into building insulation products
Wind energy is the renewable energy technology expected to provide the largest contribution to the EU's renewable energy targets for 2020 and beyond. No doubt, the horizon is bright for the wind sector. There's just one drawback: what to do with decommissioned wind turbines. Currently, more than 95 % end up in landfills. The EU-funded Green-Insulation has an alternative solution that involves the recycling of discarded wind turbine blades. Specifically, it will develop products applying the recycled material as acoustic absorbents in noise barriers and for thermal insulation purposes. Developed by Denmark's Miljøskærm, the aim of this SME phase 1 project is to assess the technical, commercial and financial feasibility of the thermal insulation product.
