Eolbox, a waste management solution for wind farms

Wind energy is clean!

Wind turbines produce neither contaminated materials, nor fluid waste, nor CO2 and they require no natural fossil resources.
Yet a wind turbine produces indirect waste from the maintenance of its components, such as the mast, nacelle and rotor.

They also have batteries containing lead, used oils, fluorescent tubes, soiled packaging, aerosols, etc.

To manage this waste, opt for organization, safety and accessibility!

Choose EOLBOX: the first integrated solution for waste management from wind farms, designed and patented by the Ortec Group.
