Newly found way to recycle polyurethane, a ubiquitous though complicated plastic material

Polyurethane (PU) is a plastic material used in an infinite number of products. Unfortunately, it is difficult to break down and recycle, which leads to increasing PU waste accumulating every year. However, researchers from Aarhus University have found a way to deconstruct PU, which shows the potential for a circular plastic economy for PU.

New coalition of industry and academia to commercialise solution for full recyclability of wind turbine blades

A new partnership between Skrydstrup Group (iNANO & Dept. of Chemistry, Aarhus University), Vestas, Olin, and the Danish Technological Institute collides industry and research to support circularity of wind turbine blades. The CETEC project paves the way for manufacturing new blades using materials from old turbine blades, thereby creating fully…
