IEA Wind Task 45 - Enabling the recycling of wind turbine blades

    Project Details


    The challenges related to wind turbine blade recycling are broad and range from technical challenges to legislation disparities and lack of information on the materials to be recycled. Recycling wind turbine blades is a process with a complex value chain involving several stakeholders with different interests.
    To address the issues related to blade recycling, this Task brings the key stakeholders together to identify the barriers and mitigation strategies for the implementation of large-scale wind turbine blade recycling solutions.
