Wind turbine blade coating is not toxic and does not account for large – or any – emissions of BPA or microplastics.

Claims have been made that wind turbine blades shed dangerous amounts of microplastics and BPA – but nothing could be further from the truth.

  • CLAIM: Wind turbine blades are emitting large amounts of bisphenol A (BPA) and microplastics into their surrounding environments.
  • FACT: Wind turbine blades contain only microscopic traces of residual BPA and therefore do not account for large, or any, emissions of BPA or microplastics to the environment.
  • CLAIM: Erosion caused by rain releases BPA and microplastics from wind turbine blades into the environment.
  • FACT: Wind turbine blades’ protective coatings are non-toxic and contain negligible amounts of BPA, and the blades are specifically designed to have high resistance to weathering.
