Working towards 100% recyclable wind turbines
When: Tuesday, 23 November 2021, 14:00 - 15:00
Where: Auditorium A12
Today, around 85-90% of wind turbines' total mass can be recycled and have established recycling practices in place. Wind turbine blades are more challenging to recycle, largely due to the composite materials used in their production/configuration.
In 2021, the European Wind Industry called for a Europe-wide landfill ban on decommissioned wind turbine blades by 2025.
In this session we will discuss what is happening now/what the industry is doing, to achieve 100% circular/recyclable wind turbines:
- Scaling-up recycling technologies
- Cross-industry collaboration on composite waste
- Use of other/more sustainable materials in blade design
