Waste-to-energy

Recovering energy from residual waste that cannot be recycled is a cornerstone in any integrated resource management system.

Energy Tower, Roskilde, Denmark

Waste-to-energy facility with high energy recovery

One of the primary objectives of Ramboll’s consultancy to new waste-to-energy units is to maximise energy recovery. At the waste-to-energy facility in Roskilde, Denmark, energy recovery was increased by 35 %. Explore the project here.

We cracked it! Waste-to-Energy heat pumps.

Until now, no waste-to-energy plant in Denmark has used heat pumps to boost flue gas condensation and recover heat. No one believed it could be done cost-effectively. However, the design team at Ramboll Energy had other ideas.

Vestforbrænding is the largest waste incineration plant in Denmark.

Towards a greener waste cycle

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.
