Waste and wastewater are not problems – they are resources that offer immense potential for the environment.
This is the philosophy behind the Billund BioRefinery that combines the strongest environmental technologies within water treatment and biogas in one significant, full-scale demonstration project.
The Danish Ministry of Environment and VTU Fonden (Water Sector Technology Development Foundation) selected Krüger A/S and Billund Vand A/S as partners in the development of the Lighthouse Project, Future Wastewater Treatment Plant.
Billund BioRefinery (BBR) is a resource recovery plant that integrates urban waste management and wastewater treatment with circular economy. We produce energy, clean water and nutrient rich natural fertilizer, all whilst effectively cleaning all the influent waste streams and protecting the environment.
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This has led to severe environmental degradation of many inland and sea waters around the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
