Wind Blade Recycling Plant Declared Project of Regional Interest by Navarra Government


ACCIONA’s wind blade recycling plant, Waste2Fiber, has been declared a project of regional interest by the Government of Navarra, allowing acceleration of the project’s permitting process and development.

Construction of the facility is set to begin in the first half of this year. Once operational, the company says the plant will have a processing capacity of 6,000 tons of material annually. 

The plant is slated to use a proprietary thermal treatment technology for the recycling of composite materials present in wind turbine blades. The process, which avoids combustion, makes it possible to preserve the properties of the reinforcing fibers, reuse the organic components and transform the composite materials into secondary raw materials.
