As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, where quantum computing, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology represent some of the technological breakthroughs, the need for a global focus on how to optimise the use of resources in the more traditional industrialised process is as pressing as ever.
Industrial symbioses represent an opportunity for companies, utilities and local authorities to engage in mutually beneficial partnerships, where positive environmental impacts are as essential as economic gains. Industrial symbioses can create opportunities for significant resource optimisation, while at the same time creating competitive advantages for the partners involved. An example could be to enter a circuit where waste streams become resource streams and where one company’s excess heat becomes the other’s source of heat.
Denmark and China sign MoU to collaborate on sustainable development
State of Green and China Green Sustainable Development Association (CGSDA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Nordic-China Smart City Conference held in Sweden last week. The MoU sets out the two parties’ intentions to work together to spur green, sustainable development.
Global business leaders inspired by state-of-the-art collaboration against plastic waste
The P4G award winner NextWave Plastics displayed a bankable sustainable solution during the UN Climate Summit taking place in Nairobi, Kenya this week. A great example showing that solving global challenges requires broad commitment and cooperation, said Danish Minister for Food and Environment.
Surplus CO2 from agricultural production reused to carbonate soft drinks
Advancing the concept of circular production, two Danish companies are collaborating to reuse surplus CO2 from the world’s biggest biogas plant in the Danish city of Esbjerg in carbonated soft drinks. Doing so reduces CO2 emissions from the biogas production and allows access to scarce carbon dioxide reserves.

From sustainable biomass to competitive bioenergy
Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes. This White Paper gives an overview of Denmark’s solutions, cases and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions.
