We’re Looking For the Next Generation of Fully-Recyclable Wind Turbine Blades

Challenge 1 – Turbine Blade Circular Design, Materials

The first SDG Connect challenge, Vestas’ Turbine Blade Circular Design, Materials challenge, is an open call to technology innovators and startups to develop:

    • Advanced solutions/materials that can be used in Vestas’ next-generation wind turbine blades that will be fully recyclable at end-of-life
    • Solutions that align with Vestas’ sustainability strategy goal of having zero-waste wind turbines by 2040.

Challenge 2 – Turbine Blade Circular Design, Decommissioning

The second SDG Connect challenge, Vestas’ Turbine Blade Circular Design, Decommissioning challenge, is an open call to technology innovators and startups to develop:

    • Solutions for separating materials in decommissioned wind turbine blades
    • Solutions for making the separated recycled materials applicable for relevant industry
