Waste to energy

Investing in highly energy-efficient and clean incineration plants turns waste into a resource for heat and electricity production

Waste that cannot be reused or recycled often end up in landfills. However, this waste could be seen as a resource for heat and electricity production. Incineration plants with cogeneration of heat and electricity as well as flue gas cleaning turn waste into energy in a sustainable way. Existing technologies enable cities to invest in highly energy-efficient and clean incineration plants.

In Denmark, incineration plants typically produce 3 times more heat than power. The heat produced from waste is distributed through the district heating system, supplying more than 12 per cent of all residential buildings in Denmark with heat.
