Glass Fiber Reclamation

Wind turbine blades are made from non-recyclable polymers strengthened by glass fibers. As a result, these structures are unfortunately relegated to landfills following retirement. This presents a major obstacle for wind energy to be truly sustainable. Our technology offers an attractive, facile method for responsibly re-using these materials at what normally would be their end of life. Glass to Glass can give these materials a chance to be reborn into sustainable, recyclable composites.

 

Receive Blade Waste (tipping)

Receive bulk waste fiberglass composite (e.g. retired wind turbine blades, boat hulls, automotive panels)

 

Pre-sort and Shred Material

Cutting and shredding for further reduction of blades to produce optimal pyrolysis feedstock.

 

Pyrolyze & Glass to Glass Technology

Pyrolysis and G2G process to fully remove polymer, char, and other fillers from the glass fibers to restore fiber properties to virgin-like values.

 

Compounding in to Intermediate

Convert reclaimed glass fiber into desired polymer composites intermediates. This is then used to produce final composite products again.
