Wind turbine blades have a service life of around 20 to 25 years and are then decommissioned while generally still having excellent structural performance and high-value material properties. Currently, the recycling options for the fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite components that make up the blade are limited, so most blades are either...

The circular economy is an economic model in which resources are circulated in a closed loop by adopting the R-strategies (e.g. reuse, recycling, and reduce) to minimize waste and pollution. Repurposing vacant buildings, known as adaptive reuse, is in line with the principle of circular economy, as it contributes to the reuse of the built assets...
