BIOFOS is Denmark’s largest wastewater utility treating wastewater in Greater Copenhagen.
We share knowledge and cooperate with all parts of the water sector. We thoroughly test solutions developed by the Danish water industry.
The shift from a conventional wastewater treatment plant towards a resource recovery facility has become a priority focus in Denmark. Consequently, BIOFOS is now in the transfer process towards optimising resources from waste without compromising 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.
Good water management can make cities healthier places to live, resilient towards climate change and more sustainable overall. Without proper sanitation, sewerage and clean water supply, there is no liveable city. This white paper features lessons learned from different Danish stakeholders within urban water management. It is meant to serve as a tool for inspiration for creating innovative water solutions, which contribute to smarter and more liveable cities.
At EnviDan, we are proud that we will once again have the opportunity to use our specialist competencies in wastewater, when we, together with BIOFOS, will be in charge of the lighthouse project VARGA, which has been granted just over DKK 19 million. DKK in grants from the Ministry of the Environment and Food under the MUDP program.
The Danish government has set an ambitious reduction target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 70 per cent by 2030. One technology that has been suggested that could help achieve substantial reductions is carbon capture and storage (CCS)
