Soil pollution is a global environmental problem with negative impacts on our groundwater, ecosystems and CO2 emissions as poor quality soil absorbs less carbon. Urbanisation, population growth, intensive food production and lack of drinking water have increased the urgency for innovative soil remediation measures and limiting landfills to a minimum. In Denmark, a ban on landfill of waste suitable for incineration or recycling means that less than 5 percent of all waste is landfilled. In already contaminated areas, soil remediation measures are implemented to remove pollution. Many of these can easily be put into practice across the globe.
We invite you to explore solutions related to landfill and soil remediation in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how landfill and soil remediation can help solve your environmental issues.

New Danish partnership between companies and researchers are developing a new method of recycling plastic, which would otherwise end up incinerated or as landfill. The technology can help reduce oil consumption and CO2 emissions – and be a really good business for Danish companies.
Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 (P4G)– led by the governments of Chile, Denmark, Ethiopia, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, and Vietnam, along with leaders from business and international organisations will be launched today at the United Nations headquarters.
NGF Nature Energy has entered into an agreement with BioenergiSyd (Bioenergy South) to invest EUR 67 million in biogas and to construct two biogas plants in the Danish municipality of Sønderborg, which is located in the southern part of Denmark.
Californian authorities will use Danish water technology in order to generate an overview of the areas and the groundwater resources that have been affected by the drought in the state. Furthermore, this project will accelerate the opportunity to utilize fresh groundwater within the drinking water supply.
In this paper, you will meet the ten partners behind the Tours Network and find inspiration for site visits across energy efficiency, renewables, waste and resource management, clean air, water and climate adaptation.
If you are interested in visiting Denmark to explore these solutions and learn more about the concrete technologies, as well as connect with Danish stakeholders and share knowledge about green growth development, we encourage you to contact the Tours Network.
Every year, thousands of public and private international decision makers visit Denmark to be inspired by green Danish solutions. 10 national and regional visiting services have now strengthened their collaboration to widen the opportunities for the international guests.
Soil is literally the foundation on which we will build a sustainable future. Despite this, soil is contaminated, exploited, and degraded all over the world. Insides this White Paper is an overview of the Danish sector for soil and groundwater remediation and the companies which contribute to its development.
In China, the rate of urbanization has embarked on a fast track and old contaminated industrial areas are vacated in order to make space for residential development. Urbanization creates an increased need for assessment and evaluation of subsurface environmental issues. Wuxi is, with its 7 million inhabitants, one of China’s large cities. The city is also the location at which Geo has been engaged to perform environmental assessments and delineation of contaminated soil and groundwater as a result of activities on a former coking plant.
Methodology for fast and reliable Investigation and Characterization of Contaminated Sites (MICCS) MICCS is a new high-tech method for mapping underground pollution. The method was developed through a partnership of five European companies and funded through the EU’s 7th Framework. MICCS leverages a number of new, cutting-edge technologies in order to produce a survey tool […]
THE MOST COMMONLY USED TECHNOLOGIES This remediation catalogue is a summary of the technologies most commonly used by Danish authorities and enterprises.It contains detailed descriptions of the most relevant design parameters to be measured in the field when chosing between differrent solutions for different phsyical settings. The remediation catalogue is made with contribution from ORBICON, RAMBØLL, COWI, GEO, […]
A SINGLE POINT OF ENTRY The National network of test sites has been established to encourage and facilitate the development, demonstration, and maturation of new techniques for the investigation and remediation of soil and groundwater contamination – with a particular focus on competitive, cost, and resource-efficient solutions. There may also be concurrent projects and on-site […]
MAPPING OF THE DANISH SOIL AND GROUNDWATER REMEDIATION SECTOR This report presents an overview of the Danish sector for soil and groundwater remediation as well as the companies which contribute to its development. The content of the report is meant to serve as an inspiration and as a helpful tool for international stakeholders who wish […]
GETTING SMART ABOUT CLEANING OUR SOIL Denmark is a small country in which groundwater is the primary source of drinking water. With thousands of contaminated sites, it has been paramount to develop smart ways to identify and prioritize which sites to remediate. In Denmark, we have developed solutions to soil contamination issues for more than […]
Keeping landfilling safe Odense Environmental Centre was established in 1994 by Odense Waste Management Ltd. and is one of the largest and most moderne environmentally safe waste treatment centres in Northern Europe. By landfilling solid waste the environmental centre have to sustain a high degree of environmental protection. Odense Environmental Centre serves as a waste […]
The old dump site, Stige Island, has been used for dumping waste for 3 decades, but has been redeveloped into a beautiful recreational area. Today the old dump offers a variety of outdoor activities such as mountain bike tracks, dirt jump tracks, bonfires, playgrounds, hills for all year sledging and of course tracks for walking while […]
Removing contamination from the soil is expensive. For this reason, the Capital Region is working together with companies and researchers to develop new methods. One promising method is to run a low electrical voltage through contaminated boulder clay, add “bacteria food” (reactants) and bacteria to eat the contamination. This method uses up to 25% less […]
The Capital Region has a responsibility to detect, investigate and cleanse contaminated soil. The Region spends approximately DKK 140 million a year on this, and they would like to see this money going further. With this in mind – and with a view to developing new environmental technologies for the whole world – the Region […]
In Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD) – Soil remediation you can trust ISTD is a robust, proven and patented technology for heating the subsurface to remediate contaminated soil and groundwater. ISTD shows an unbeaten record of site closures. ISTD can be applied for in-situ remediation of all deposits (soil types). The technology is particularly suitable in case of stringent […]
In simple terms, Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is testing, verifying and documenting the performance of an environmental technology. The aim of ETV is to validate that the technology suits its purpose and performs as claimed. This means that your environmental technology can obtain a quality stamp from an independent verification unit in form of a […]
