Ingenuity talks: Is waste-to-energy part of a sustainable future?
Green Transition 26 September 2019 Bettina Kamuk
In a world with a growing population and increasing consumption, there is a pressing need to use our resources in the best possible way. This involves reducing waste generation, ensuring high-quality recycling, and using residual waste for efficient and clean energy generation at waste-to-energy facilities. Listen to Ramboll’s podcast about ideas that help solve global problems.
Enabling a green economy where economic development does not compromise the future
Cutting cost is essential to accelerate the green transition. Using advanced cloud-based computing, engineers are making major progress in this field. In one offshore wind project, it saved almost a thousand tons of steel - on each foundation. Listen to Ramboll’s podcast about ideas that help solve global problems.
The increasing pressure on resources makes it clear that waste must be turned into a resource in a circular economy - an economy that only functions optimally if it includes recycling as well as energy recovery.
The Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant in Copenhagen produces energy from waste, with extreme efficiency and a recreational touch.
Globally, there is a general push towards renewables, although conventional energy will continue to play a significant role in the energy mix in the coming years. Major players in the energy sector change their portfolio and strategies to accommodate for the green transition. A holistic approach is required to support the sector on this journey.
