Have the greentards mentioned yet where they are going to dig the new landfills in which to bury all those broken windmill parts? They take up a lot of space and aren't recyclable.

Neither are the batteries in their Teslas...

there are multiple companies including tesla that are developing recycling technology that is orders of magnitude better than what exists today. my hats off to them for figuring out solutions to problems like this.

Don't worry - you and I will just pay more taxes to the government for the money needed to make battery recycling "sustainable"

I've personally observed the Government buy shit just to throw it away...its commonly referred to as a 'subsidy'...

I once did consulting for a battery recycling company. It depends on what's in them and what price they're going to the recycler for. Battery recyclers jump through a lot of hoops due to the chemicals in them so if tesla makes the costs right it will be handled between manufacture/reseller and an industrial recycler.

Consumers are a different story. Not sure who's going to take it directly from the consumer. Maybe auto shops or auto retail chains? Some of them will recycle normal car batteries so it may fall under that category.

Nothing wrong with Teslas. Elon is doing everything right.

There is a lot wrong with tesla from a quality standpoint.

Yep, and not to mention the price to buy one that isn’t basic wheels/color with horrible range.

Have they figured out how to make them without the coal needed for steel?

That's not entirely true. Thermosets can be acid digested and then neutralized. The recovered organics can be used to make new resins and the recovered fiber can be used to make new prepreg or preforms for infusion & RTM.

It's more complicated than regrinding thermoplastics and puting it back into the material stream, but recycling of thermosets can be done.
