The project by real-estate developer Yareal will be Poland’s largest project to assume a widespread application for discarded wind turbine blades in its design, transforming them into elements of public use in communal areas, such as outdoor seating.
A windy start to the week resulted in Polish wind farms generating a record amount of energy, giving Poland third place in Europe in terms of the volume of wind energy production, writes the Rzeczpospolita newspaper.
The Wind Panel was created to be the next generation of onshore wind turbine, going beyond current technologies available on the market for capturing wind energy.
The increased supply of wind energy meant lowers electricity prices and a drop in energy imports.
As the hazards of wind turbines have become clearer, so too has the fightback. Whereas, traditionally-speaking, defunct propeller blades have simply ended up in landfill sites or subjected to high-energy processes such as milling or pyrolysis, recycling firm Anmet and its subsidiary AIRchitecture is adopting a more experimental approach to counter the issue.
