Over one million tons of composites are used every year to manufacture wind-turbine blades. However, these blades made of thermoset composites (epoxy or polyester) are not easy to recycle at their end of life stage. To meet this challenge, Arkema has developed Elium, the first liquid thermoplastic resin using the same infusion process and equipment as thermoset
Blades account for the highest amount of composites consumption in their manufacturing.
