Vattenfall has set new targets in how to deal with wind turbine blades at end of life. An immediate commitment to a landfill ban on decommissioned wind turbine blades has been made.
Furter the companies set a target if a 50 percent recycling rate of wind turbine blades by 2025 and a 100 percent recycling rate of wind turbine blades by 2030. To achieve the target, Vattenfall, among others, supports research on material recycling of composite waste and promotes the use of recycled composite material in new products. Furthermore, there will be a long-term approach focusing on all aspects of circular economy, such as supporting the recyclability of wind blades by design, and thereby increasing the value of the recycled material at end of life.
