University of Edinburgh awarded £125k for turbine recycling research

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have been handed £125 thousand to develop their wind turbine recycling process.

Professor Vasileios Koutsos and Dr Dipa Roy are developing a technique to turn old wind turbine blades into powders that could be used to protect engineering and structural components, including new wind turbine blades.

The powders could be used in surface coatings, to protect engineering and structural components from corrosion and erosion caused by rain.
