Maddie Stone writes in The Verge on innovative ways that wind turbines are being repurposed.
- In Ireland, engineers have constructed a pedestrian bridge made out of recycled wind turbine blades.
- Once they are decommissioned, wind turbine blades are usually sent to landfills where they take up huge amounts of space and rarely break down easily.
- Using recycled blades is a win-win for the environment. By using the blades, fewer new materials need to be made and less waste is sent to landfills.
- As the world looks to deploy more wind energy, finding innovative ways to use old blades could be useful for reducing waste and our carbon footprint.
