Natural Fiber, Wind Turbine Blades, Energy, Composites, Ecofriendly Materials


The wind turbine blade which is currently developed with carbon and glass fiber-filled composites, is a key part of the wind turbine system used in the production of wind energy. Present-day realities have necessitated the need for the replacement of these materials which are costly, scarce, non-biodegradable, non-eco-friendly, with natural fibers which are more available, and eco-friendly, hence, this research. This study gives an overview of the wind energy industry, the systems of production with the blades in particular. It describes the attributes of natural fibers, their composites, and hybrids of the natural fibers, their defects, and their possible application in the development of wind turbine blades.
