Becoming circular: turbine components recycling
Environmental impacts, spatial planning & social acceptance
When: Thursday, 4 April 2019, 15:00 - 16:15
Where: Auditorium 2
The recycling of wind turbine components is a multifaceted challenge that is becoming more pressing as a significant part of Europe’s wind turbine fleet nears the end of its operational lifetime. This session will look at the state-of-the-art in dealing with the different types of materials included in wind turbine components such as composite materials for blades and lubricants. It will provide an overview of existing recycling technologies and regulatory frameworks, as well as concrete examples of solutions.
