Wind Recycling Concepts // DecomBlades and DecomTools Conference

Event duration: 5 hours and 30 minutes
Venue: Carlsberg Lounge, Blue Water Arena, Esbjerg Konference & Event, Gl. Vardevej 82, 6700 Esbjerg, Denmark

Join our Conference on Wind Recycling Concepts and meet stakeholders from different sectors working within the field of decommissioning in the wind industry.

We have gathered experts from universities, industries, and ports to assure an all-around approach of the topic. The conference is hosted by the two projects DecomBlades and DecomTools funded by Innovation fund Denmark and Interreg North Sea.


During the conference you will gain knowledge of the different decommissioning processes such as:

  • Shredding and pyrolysis of blades
  • The legal framework regulating the decommissioning possibilities
  • The role of the ports in decommissioning processes


Furthermore, we will present an Use case scenario of 30 LM 48.7m blades located at the Port of Esbjerg

We will have breaks and break out-sessions during the day, which will assure you having plenty of network possibilities meeting stakeholders from the whole value chain.
