Composites is a well-known subject in Aalborg among knowledge institutions such as Aalborg Universityand prominent manufacturers in the area, which still manufacture innovative products for wind turbine blades, ship components e.g., for the entire world. One of Aalborg’s core industries is wind power with such key global players as Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy, BLAEST and Bladt Industriesas well as subcontractors. Consequently, besides shaping glass fibre materials, the development of new solutions for decommissioning blades and other glass fibre materials is an important focal point in the area, and we are collaborating via knowledge and resources to create future solutions.
Plastic is a material with huge potential. Properly handled, plastics can be a useful resource and afford companies new business opportunities. In Aalborg, you will join a vast array of companies and networks collaborating on the development of new solutions for recycling and upcycling plastics. These solutions include turning plastic waste into new products, reducing emissions by sequestering carbon in plastics, sharing resources and turning waste into capital. In other words, producing a cradle-to-cradle life cycle for plastics. Our aim is to become the leading plastics symbiosis for circular solutions in Europe.
