Deena Theresa writes for Interesting Engineering about wind turbines that can be used to make gummy bears.
- While wind energy is important in reducing CO2 emissions, the waste that old turbines generate is significant.
- Researchers at Michigan State University have created turbines that can be recycled into new blades or other products such as car lights, building materials, or even gummy bears.
- These blades are made with glass fibers and plant-based polymers.
- While promising, the researchers have stated that more bioplastic production will be needed to bring their turbines to market.
