Waste incineration

Converting waste to heat and electricity at waste incineration plants

Today, many societies  are struggling with congested and polluted landfills. In order to combat this challenge,  resources must be subtracted from the waste for recycling, while the remains can provide a source of low-carbon energy through incineration. Each year, the Danish waste sector collects and processes 15 million tonnes of waste  and the Danish waste-to-energy plants convert the waste for heat and electricity production. Danish incineration plants are the cleanest and most efficient in the world, and they are part of the reason why less than 5 percent of the country’s waste goes to landfills.
