Wind turbine blades could be buried at end of working life

Hundreds of huge wind turbine blades could end up having to be buried at the end of their working life.

A report for Aberdeenshire councillors has warned that recycling materials used could prove difficult.

The North-east is home to an estimated 1,000 turbines, which are said to have a life-span of up to 25 years.

The report said: “Like any other redundant machinery, wind turbines would ideally be disposed of in a sustainable manner.

“However, rotor blades are more difficult to recycle due to their complex composition and materials.”
