5,700 wind turbines to be dismantled in Europe each year by 2030

With the increasing number of wind power plants in the world, people are concerned about how to deal with retired wind turbines. For this purpose, Spanish energy company Iberdrola has decided to establish a new company that will recycle wind turbine parts.

Spanish company Iberdrola pointed out that EnergyLOOP, the new company it will establish in the future, will establish a recycling facility in Navarra, Spain.

The company said its initial goal is to recycle wind turbine blade materials, including glass, carbon fiber and resin, and reuse them for energy, aerospace, automotive, textiles, chemicals and construction.

Iberdrola said EnergyLOOP is powered by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. Wind turbine blades are made of composite materials that are difficult to recycle, and each company has a slightly different design, so in the past, most of the industry burned or buried these waste blades directly.

In the future, there will be more and more retired wind turbines, and the situation will become more and more serious. About 5,700 wind turbines a year are expected to be removed in Europe by 2030, Iberdrola has claimed.
