New composite materials make wind energy even greener

Official Press Release Vanderbilt University:

New recyclable resin makes wind turbines much more sustainable

New composite materials make wind energy even greener by making the turbines themselves recyclable.

Fields of spinning wind turbines inspire thoughts of earth-friendly energy, but until now, generating wind power hasn’t been as sustainable as people may have thought. It generally requires a great deal of time and energy to cure the type of resin that makes the 150-foot-wide fiberglass turbines strong and durable. When they finally wear out after 20 or 25 years, very little of the material can be recycled. Doug Adams, Distinguished Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Daniel F. Flowers Professor, said that made wind turbines an ideal project for... ... More: Official Press Release Vanderbilt University
