According to a professional plan from the National Association of Local Authorities (KL), 10 of 23 incineration plants in Denmark must close by 2030.
It will reduce combustion capacity by 30 percent by 2030. KL states in a press release.
The plan was presented after the Folketing entered into the agreement “A green waste sector 2030” in June.
According to the agreement, KL was to designate the least efficient and least environmentally friendly facilities for closure.
And now KL is ready with a plan, which must be submitted to the Danish Energy Agency.
– We have reached a plan that takes into account both what is best for the climate and the Danish economy. It is no secret that it has not been an easy task.
– We now have a professional plan that points out that in 2030 a climate effect of 0.5 million tonnes of CO2 can be achieved and an economic efficiency gain of a total of 600 million kroner, says KL’s chairman, Jacob Bundsgaard, in the press release.
The ten incinerators to be decommissioned by 2030 are:
Argo (Roskilde), MEC Bioheat & Power (Holstebro), I / S Norfors (Hørsholm), Affaldsselskabet Vendsyssel Vest (Hjørring), AffaldPlus (Slagelse), Sønderborg Kraftvarme I / S, Aars Fjernvarme, Svendborg Kraftvarme A / S, Hammel Fjernvarme , Bornholm’s Waste Treatment.
