The Second Life Of Wind Turbine Blades

Interesting look at a recycling problem I’d never considered: what to do with the huge blades of commercial wind turbines. Not too surprisingly, Denmark is leading the search for practical solutions, for example the playgrounds pictured in this post. ~ Pat

Turbine blades are made from glass or carbon-fiber composites. These materials are strong, lightweight and have a significant aerodynamic advantage, but they are nearly impossible to recycle. And they’re massive.
