Company Announces Plans To Recycle Wind Turbine Blades

Iowa — An Iowa business is using a new way to recycle wind turbine parts once they’re no longer in service.

REGEN Fiber is owned by Travero, a subsidiary of Alliant Energy. Company president Lisha Coffey tells KCRG-TV their process is more sustainable.

Their process grinds the old blades into different materials that can be reused.

That’s why they are aiming to make this the new normal for other manufacturers in the future.

They say the material from the blades reduces plastic shrinkage, which is concrete’s inherent ability to start pulling itself apart. It gives the concrete more toughness and textural durability.
