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 and CCU 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.
