Wind Turbine Blades Can't Be Recycled, So They're Piling Up in Landfills

Veolia's Bob Capaddona discusses wind turbine blade recycling with Bloomberg Businessweek

Bob Capadonna, Veolia North America's Chief Operating Officer for Environmental Solutions and Services, discussed one of the latest challenges in the effort to create a more sustainable energy economy -- the recycling of first-generation wind turbine blades after they are no longer functional.

Capadonna, a recognized leader in the waste disposal industry, spoke to Bloomberg Businessweek about the science behind recycling wind turbine blades and how the industry's recycling capabilities are likely to expand in the future.
