Global Fiberglass is Taking the Wind Industry One Shade Greener

December 03 2018

Global Fiberglass Solutions of Texas, LLC (GFS) has been called a game changer in the wind industry. In the last four years, GFS has been collecting end-of-life blades and fiberglass waste efficiently diverting them from landfill to new products. In the last year alone, GFS has saved over 48,000,000 lbs of blade material from landfill. How did they do it? With science, of course! GFS has taken material science developed in labs to the industrial level. This empowered GFS to service some of the biggest names in the global wind industry. Together with the big players, they achieve sustainability and improve transition to a cradle-to-cradle economy.

GFS has developed its own digital technology to support its material science. This patented software provides real-time data, specs and the location of each blade. Utilization of this digital innovation allows GFS to track the composite structure of each blade, making the material science and recycling process easier and more efficient. Blades are tracked from point of collection all the way through manufacturing. All new products carry a “Certificate of Manufacturing”, which identifies the recycled blades used in production. OEM and wind farm operators can receive a “Certificate of Decommissioning” and certify the full environmental sustainability of their repowering projects.
