Cleaning smoke and exhaust from power and incineration plants by using catalysts and scrubbers
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that air pollution contributes to around seven million premature deaths every year. Industrial facilities for manufacturing, mining and oil refineries, along with heat and power generation plants are considered major sources of air pollution. Solutions for cleaning smoke and exhaust from power and incineration plants by using catalysts and scrubbers are among many Danish technologies for cleaner air.
We invite you to explore solutions related to clean air in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how clean air solutions can help solve your environmental issues.

210 mayors from a number of European cities representing 62 million citizens in total sent an open letter on Thursday urging the European Council and EU member states to commit to a long-term climate strategy with the objective of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.
Gas Phase Advanced Oxidation, or GPAO, is a novel method to remove industrial contaminants from air. Because GPAO uses very little energy and requires almost no maintenance, it is uniquely cost efficient for removing gas phase pollution, including Sulphur compounds and hydrocarbons. It also removes ozone, nitrogen oxides, and harmful particulate matter including pollen, spores […]
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – Value Creation of the Future The use of CFD in Combined Heat and Power Plants (CHP) means that you can have access to data on combustion processes, which otherwise would be impossible or very difficult to get as it either requires multiple stops in production or building an exact model […]
Transportation and mobility in cities have consequences. If we are to maintain an acceptable urban environment as traffic increases, we need to pay attention to the quality of the air. This means gathering and analysing environmental statistics and quantifying traffic-related pollution in order to influence driving behaviour and make better informed transport choices. Since the […]
Disposal of sludge from wastewater treatment plants is an environmental problem, however there are solutions. In Copenhagen, a new sludge incineration plant has been put into operation in 2011 at the plant Lynetten owned by BIOFOS, jointly owned by 8 municipalities in the central part of the Copenhagen region. As part of the new project, […]
The District Heating in Beijing is of interest in a Danish perspective. Beijing was the first city to study and use the experience from the district heating system in Greater Copenhagen. In 1984, Chief Engineer Zeng Xiang Lin started to study the system. In the years to come, Danish Consultants provided assistance financed by DANIDA. In […]
In 2004, FLSmidth built a turnkey production line for Buxton Lime Industries, in Derbyshire, England. Thanks to the new line, the Tunstead plant was immediately able to cut their energy consumption by 40%, their particulate emissions by 90%, sulphur oxides by 70% and nitrogen oxides by 10% – even though the new production line was […]
During the incineration the pollution in the waste is passed on to gas and the slag left after the incineration is completed. The flue gas is cleansed in several stages before being released through the chimney. The residue product is shipped to Norway where it is used to neutralise acids. Amager Resource Centre was the first […]
