European Wind Blade Recycling Summit 2024

Date: 12th June 2024 - 13th June 2024 Location: Copenhagen - Denmark

The wind energy industry faces a challenge: responsibly managing the disposal of decommissioned wind turbine blades. To address this, ACI is hosting the European Wind Blade Recycling Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark on June 12th and 13th, 2024.

This two-day event brings together key players in the industry, including recyclers, wind farm operators, blade manufacturers and indeed the wider supply chain of logistics and fibre-based products. The focus will be on the latest developments in wind blade recycling across Europe. Attendees can expect insights into EU policies and regulations impacting the sector, alongside discussions on the biggest challenges and opportunities linked with Blade LCA, Waste Stream Reliability and Blade Feedstock Sourcing.

The summit aims to equip participants with strategies to ensure a sustainable and profitable future for wind blade recycling. Confirmed speakers include sustainability leaders from Mitsubishi Chemical, Vattenfall, and Composite Recycling CH.

Joulmine GmbH & Co. KG provides a fully circular recycling method for wind turbine blades and GFRP composites on an industrial scale worldwide.

Our core concept focuses on comprehensive glass fiber reinforced plastic recycling and low-carbon hydrogen production, emphasizing resource regeneration through advanced processing and gasification. Our unique process, with an established proof of concept, prioritizes the circularity of all raw materials. With a 44,000-ton GFRP capacity, we aim to produce around 3,000 tons of low carbon hydrogen, capture 30,000 tons of reusable carbon, and regenerate 20,000 tons of glass by 2026. To ensure continuous operations, wind blade intake will commence in 2025 at our selected production site.

Joulmine is a young company, founded in 2022 as a spin-off by Gefna and Ambrian Energy, both companies dedicated to sustainable energy sources.


The amount of waste existing on our planet is huge. We from ARJES address the challenges of growing piles of rubbish with our technical know-how. We are specialized in the development and manufacturing of high-performance two-shaft shredders that are used to treat numerous types of waste. The efficient pre-shredding of carbon or glass fibre reinforced plastics, which are frequently used in wind turbine blades, in aircraft and shipbuilding as well as in the automotive industry, is also one of the areas of application that we can process with our machines.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
