Wind Turbine Blade Recycling Project PRoGrESS Commences May 16 2022

2022 Lucintel Composites Market Insights, May 16, 2022

A pioneering new project gets properly underway this week to develop Britain’s first wind turbine blade recycling pilot plant.

Project PRoGrESS is a GBP 2 million, three-year scheme, that is part-funded by Innovate UK and leading industry partner Aker Offshore Wind, and seeks to deliver a circular model for wind turbine blades to support the UK’s ambitious climate change targets.

Project PRoGrESS aims to commercialize a revolutionary method developed by the University of Strathclyde, separating glass-fiber and resin components in composites to recover the glass-fiber component, which can then be reprocessed, molded and reused.

The project is overseen by Composites UK, with the expertise of researchers at the University of Strathclyde, the LMC, University of Nottingham, SUEZ recycling and recovery in the UK, composites distributor GRP Solutions and composite part manufacturer, Cubis.
