Takeaways:

  • Researchers have found that the next generation of wind turbine blades could be recycled into gummy bears at the end of their service.
  • They have designed a new form of resin to create these turbines, which, once digested in an alkaline solution, can be purified and made into sweets and sports drinks.
  • “The beauty of our resin system is that at the end of its use cycle, we can dissolve it, and that releases it from whatever matrix it’s in so that it can be used over and over again in an infinite loop. That’s the goal of the circular economy” said John Dorgan, one of the researchers.
