Wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) has announced the launch of the “world’s first” recyclable commercial turbine blade.

Wind turbines generate electricity without using fossil fuels or producing particulate matter pollution, but they do create waste: they can last as long as 25 years, and up to now turbine blades could not be recycled, piling up in landfills at the end of their life. However, now the Spain-based renewable energy company Siemens Gamesa says it has finally designed a recyclable wind turbine blade.https://www.fastcompany.com/90674645/this-giant-wind-turbine-blade-can-be-recycled
