Fairmat, a French deeptech company specialised in the virtuous recycling of carbon composites, announces a major R&D agreement signed with Siemens Gamesa, one of the European leaders in the wind industry. Fairmat will collect the composite waste deriving from the manufacturing of wind turbine blades at a Siemens Gamesa production site in Aalborg, Denmark. The waste will next be transported to Fairmat’s production site, Fairfactory, located in Bouguenais (44). It is then that their compatibility with Fairmat’s industrial process and the possibility of giving them a second life in markets such as automotive, mobility, sport and construction will be studied.

Following the results of the R&D collaboration, Fairmat and Siemens Gamesa will evaluate the establishment of an ongoing collaboration on the recycling of carbon reinforced composite waste parts from Siemens Gamesa’s manufacturing processes.

“At Siemens Gamesa we are committed to the transition to a circular economy. We have a desire to minimize the waste from our processes and products, and we rely on partners like Fairmat in our strategic development. We see a great potential in the Fairmat solution, and the potential environmental benefits that it brings. The use of carbon composites in the construction of wind turbine blades is likely to increase in the next generation of wind turbines, and it is of utmost importance to SGRE to have sustainable solutions in place to handle the waste materials for this coming volume – and this solution holds this potential, we believe. ,” explains Jonas Jensen, Sustainability Specialist for Siemens Gamesa.

“We are very pleased to put our technology to work for a key ambition of the energy transition, namely to contribute to guaranteeing wind turbines a second life. It is more important than ever to find alternatives to landfill and incineration in order to preserve our natural resources. A partnership of this kind is a wonderful opportunity for Fairmat to develop on this market, to have a positive impact on the environment and to strengthen its reputation.” adds Benjamin Saada, President and Founder of Fairmat.
