It seems to me that of the 400 tonnes of the ISS. some of it must be somehow useable in orbit. After all the expense to lift it there, it would be a waste to burn it up. Anyone know what might be repurposed/reused? Solar panels? Would Starlab find it commercially viable to use anything from ISS?

I guess you can guess what happens to a closed space, even a high-tech one, when several people breathe, eat, exercise, bathe, excrete, conduct experiments, etc., in it for decades? About solar panels which adsorb decades solar and other cosmic radiation.
