Amager Ressource Center (ARC),  is København’s famous waste-to-energy facility. In February 2020, ARC completed a study showing that it is both technically and economically feasible to couple CCS (carbon capture and storage) and CCU (carbon capture and utilisation) technology to its plant. ARC’s outstanding project aims to construct, commission and operate a cost-effective pilot-scale Carbon Capture plant at ARC, operating at net-zero energy consumption and therefore complying with København’s municipality’s ambition to become CO2-neutral by 2025.

LED iBond’s project, which was also featured here, is centred around the company’s flagship product Tracy®, which will serve as the base for a new smart LED infrastructure system for the green and smart buildings of the future.

The EUDP is a funding scheme under the Danish Energy Agency (Energistyrelsen) through which the Agency aims to promote efficient use of energy and support Denmark’s path towards becoming fossil fuel-free by 2050. Thus, the EUDP provides grants for various projects that contribute to the Danish energy industry’s growth and employment. To read the official press release please click here.
