Thread: Where will the wind turbine waste go? Turbine blades can't be recycled!

  1. #1

    Default Where will the wind turbine waste go? Turbine blades can't be recycled!

    It seems that they are not metal and are a composite construction built to be as strong as possible - creating recycling problems! So just imagine all those blades that have caused so much disruption being taken down - and then what?

    If they can't be recycled then they need to be repurposed... Just needs someone with a bit of imagination.

    I've noticed some of the traditional Caithness flagstone dykes are in a pretty poor state of repair. You count fairly cover a bit of distance of you reinforced the flags with blades.
