National award-winning sculptor Chris Navarro from Casper recently read an article about the problem of disposing of obsolete wind turbine blades into his hometown’s landfill. He was taken back not only by the scope and size of the problem but by the image of a large bulldozer burying the blades, covering them with dirt never to be seen again.
Obsolete wind turbine blades extremely difficult to recycle at the present time. Thousands of tons of rotor blade waste materials are expected to arrive at waste reception centers in 2020. Researchers are currently trying to find ways to keep 1000’s of tons of blades out of the landfills.
