New technology optimises waste-to-energy plants

Demand for energy optimisation

A constant change in the composition of waste puts new demands on capabilities of incineration plants. Combined with an increased focus on energy optimisation, this drives the need to strengthen the technology behind these plants.

The partners in this project, including Rambøll, the Technical University of Denmark and three Danish incineration plants, established a collaboration aiming a making plants more energy efficient and flexible to handle waste composition. This will be possible through a more efficient incineration management. During the project, the partners will carry out experimental tests as well as research of the underlying technology. The knowledge will form the basis for commercial exploitation of the results as well as new research within the area.

Help throughout the entire application process

Our role was as coordinator of the entire application process. Initially, we helped frame the project objectives and define the tasks of each partner making it absolutely clear how the project would be carried out. Based on input from the consortia, we wrote the application, which resulted in funding for the 2-year project.
