During the past decades many researchers focused on finding a solution for the wind turbine blades that faced end of life but the main challenge for all the previous research was lack of acceptable pathway that was viable economically. Because these blades currently considered as a waste, spending lots of energy and chemical material for them is not an acceptable solution, that is why we suggest an innovative method for solving this problem by considering mechanically recycled wind turbine blades (rWTBs) as a feedstock for making second generation composites.
