Circular economy: put a plug in the tub
Waste in landfill is equal to resources flowing out of the circular economy. Danish Waste Association would thus like to see European ambitions raised for waste resources. The solutions could perhaps be found by taking a look at the Danish waste-to-energy model.
A river of waste or waste-to-energy?
We are good at collecting waste and we are good at reusing waste and we are practically world champions when it comes to utilising the waste that cannot be reused for energy.
B&W Vølund converts boiler from coal to wood chips
Food ingredient producer DuPont Nutrition & Health will soon be able to burn wood chips in the old coal boiler at its factory in Grindsted, Denmark. This will be the outcome of a conversion project delivered by B&W Vølund. It will mean not only cleaner energy but also a considerable amount of excess heat for the nearby district heating plant.
Minor initiative has big effect in Hässleholm
The boiler at Hässleholm Miljö AB, a district heating plant in Sweden, has been given an extra gear. The upgrade has increased capacity by 15%, which among other things means that the plant now saves 213 thousand euro annually. As such, the investment has paid for itself in just one and a half years.
Energnist boosts capacity by one third
Energnist, an energy-from-waste plant located in Esbjerg, Denmark, burns a total 235,000 tonnes of waste annually and currently logs 1,200 more hours at full capacity each year than when it opened in 2002. The explanation lies in the thorough planning and countless modifications, both large and small, which have combined to allow the plant to use its time, resources and equipment in a more efficient manner.
