Partnering towards a circular wind energy industry
GE Renewable Energy and LafargeHolcim have announced an MOU to explore circular economy solutions to utilize materials from decommissioned wind turbines. With its Research & Development team, LafargeHolcim is exploring how wind turbine blades can be turned into sustainable construction materials. This research builds on Geocycle's ongoing initiative to safely recycle and recover GE’s decommissioned turbine blades after they have been removed from the turbine and shredded.
Geocycle currently offers co-processing solutions for wind blades in Germany and will evaluate the possibility of extending this solution to other parts of Europe.
