Iberdrola, through its PERSEO programme, and FCC Ámbito, a subsidiary of FCC Servicios Medio Ambiente, have launched EnergyLOOP.
The initial objective will be the recovery of wind turbine blade components - mostly glass and carbon fibres and resins - and their reuse in sectors such as energy, aerospace, automotive, textiles, chemicals and construction. To this end, the new company plans to set up Spain's first blade recycling plant in Navarre. The project will work on the different stages that enable the circularity of wind turbine blades, including on-site pre-treatment and conditioning, waste transport logistics, recycling technologies and the marketing of recycled products. The initiative undertaken by Iberdrola and FCC Ámbito has the support of Siemens Gamesa.
