Since its launch just three months ago, 30 organisations including renewables giants Orsted, EDF Renewables and Zero Waste Scotland have officially expressed interest in joining the Coalition for Wind Industry Circularity (CWIC) led by the University of Strathclyde operated National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS), SSE Renewables and Renewable Parts.

The industry led CWIC aims to urgently improve the green credentials of the UK wind industry and achieve full supply chain circularity by 2030. It has revealed that tens of billions of pounds could be generated for the UK economy from the re-use, refurbishment and re-engineering of end-of-life wind turbine parts.

Organisations that have formally expressed interest include Scottish Power Renewables, EDF Renewables, Scottish circular initiative WEEE Scotland, The Crown Estates and Decom Mission formerly known as Decom North Sea.

Taking place on 27 June 2023 at the new NMIS facility next to Glasgow airport, the first gathering of the coalition will provide the opportunity for new and potential members to define how the CWIC will operate and agree on its priority action areas.
