Denmark has a legally binding target of a 70 % reduction in GHG emissions by 2030 (compared with 1990). Such an ambitious reduction cannot be achieved only by having more electric cars and wind turbines. All industries must undergo a green transition – also the waste management.
“We need a better management of waste and materials. At the same time, it is crucial that the waste management reform safeguards health and safety at work”, says Bente Sorgenfrey, Vice President Danish Trade Union Confederation.
The company B&W Vølund builds some of the most environmentally friendly waste facilities in the world. The green development of B&W Vølund’s products takes place in the actual setup and testing of the waste-to-energy plants.
Here the workers play an important role in finding green solutions. A concrete example of an emission reduction is the workers setting up a waste-to-energy plant making a 30% CO2 saving on the waste grid on site.
The company’s ambition is a world without landfills.
