US-BASED TESTING PROVES THAT THE PLAGAZI PROCESS CAN FULLY RECYCLE WIND TURBINE BLADES
Original date: June 24, 2021
Plagazi has together with its main supplier and exclusive partner, InEnTec, successfully tested the treatment of Wind Turbine Blades in their plasma gasification plant in the US.
The testing successfully proves that the patented Plagazi process can treat and fully recycle Wind Turbine Blades into green hydrogen and capture its fiberglass for re-usage. Wind turbine Blades can therefore be added to the long list of materials which can be recycled into hydrogen at a competitive production cost and low CO2 footprint. In addition, this test also puts the Plagazi process on the map as one of the only established technologies today to be able to fully recycle Wind Turbine Blades.
Wind Turbine Blades are one of the fastest growing waste problems in Europe at the moment, and it is due to the continent’s inability to recycle the giant plastic and fiberglass structures. Once the blades are scrapped and piled on landfills, the blades will remain there essentially forever – they do not degrade or break down over time.
It is estimated that 14,000 wind turbine blades will be decommissioned by 2023 in Europe. This is equivalent to between 40,000 and 60,000 metric tons and can potentially fuel multiple HE2000 Plagazi units for years to come.
