Wooden wind power takes flight

Friday 10 May 2024

German company Voodin Blade Technology unveils the world's first prototype wooden wind turbine blades, revolutionising renewable energy technology. These innovative blades, made from sustainable laminated veneer lumber (LVL), signal a much-needed shift away from traditional fibreglass and carbon fibre blades that are notoriously difficult to recycle.

"Most old turbine blades end up buried or burned," says Voodin Blade Technology CEO Tom Siekmann. "That's 50 million tonnes of waste by 2050 if we don't act. Our wooden blades make green energy truly green."

Not only are Voodin's blades more sustainable, but their LVL construction also allows for improved automation and flexibility during manufacturing. It's a win-win for cleaner energy and a healthier planet.
