Although 80% to 90% of wind turbine components can be recycled or resold, turbine blades still pose a challenge. The economics of dealing with waste blades have been unfavorable, and going fully circular at scale is an unsolved issue. To address this concern, the ZEBRA (Zero wastE Blade ReseArch) project aims to make 100% recyclable thermoplastic composite turbine blades and will assess their technical, economic, and environmental impact. Organized by IRT Jules Verne, this project unites groups across the value chain, including Arkema, Engie, Suez, LM Wind Power, Plateforme Canoe, and Owens Corning. It has a budget of €18.5 million and will last 42 months.
