Dismantling and pre-treatment of end-of-life wind turbine blades

Composite materials account for 2% of the total mass of a wind turbine, and the aim of the European EoLO-HUBs project is to deploy large-scale technologies for recycling composites from end-of-life wind turbines.

The Spanish technology center AITIIP, coordinator of the project and drawing on its experience in the aeronautics sector, is working on the pre-treatment and preparation of composites prior to the recycling stage. To prepare these composites, the wind turbine blades must first be cut up and cleaned of the surface treatments they have undergone during manufacture.

PLAIRE works on high-performance recycled plastics

A regional consortium has just received a grant from France 2030 to develop new materials based on recycled plastics.
Labelled Techtera - Polymeris, the PLAIRE multi-partner project has just received 990,000 euros from France 2030. The consortium comprises four entities from the Aurhalp region. The project initiator is Cycl-Add (Maillat / Ain), an SME founded in 2016, which markets recycled plastics (mainly polypropylene and polyamide) using a process that supplies 100% recycled materials, including additives. The company is supported by a parent company, CRE-ADD, which includes a design office (Creastuce). Cycl-Add has in-house skills in eco-design and life-cycle analysis.
