Reusing outdated abandoned wind turbine blades




In Fairfax, Iowa recently, a $10 million new plant, built by REGEN Fiber, owned by Alliant Energy subsidiary Travero, hosted a grand opening Wednesday to explain the process for recycling decommissioned wind turbine blades.

The plant, which cost more than $10 million and employs eight people, is expected to start processing materials next week, according to The Gazette, a newspaper in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The company uses a mechanical process to tear up the abandoned and old wind blades.
