New technology that will enable wind turbine blades to be fully recycled has been unveiled (by academic and industry experts led by Vestas), with a vision of an industry-ready solution for widespread adoption within three years. Currently, wind turbines are 85-90 percent recyclable, with the wind blade materials making the bulk of the remaining percentage that cannot be recycled.
