Startup to launch commercial-scale operation of wind turbine blade recycling

Diana DiGangi of Utility Dive reports on REGEN Fiber, a startup that is recycling old wind turbines.

The C3 Take
  • REGEN Fiber has created a process that converts decommissioned wind turbine blades into a reinforcement fiber for steel and mortar.
  • The company will open a commercial-scale facility in Iowa that, when in full production, will be able to recycle over 30,000 tons of shredded blade materials per year.
  •  Private sector innovation is creating a cleaner planet.

“REGEN Fiber has also begun recycling scrap materials from manufacturing of the blades. This scrap is processed into fibers that can be used for asphalt and composite products, the company said.”
