The Re-Wind project is a response to a challenge of end-life-life management of non-biodegradable blades found in current wind turbines in a sustainable manner. The project takes an innovative multidisciplinary approach, to compare sustainable end–of–life reuse and recycling strategies for these composite material wind turbine blades.
