Amager Bakke waste-to-energy plant in Copenhagen

New heights for CCS

Danish researchers say they have demonstrated that it is possible to remove most of the carbon dioxide (CO2) from the emissions of a waste incinerator. By demonstrating the viability of the process, a key technology in the fight against climate change is surely awaiting deployment, they suggest. A pilot plant has been operational in Copenhagen for several months and a novel gas monitoring technology has been used to optimize the efficiency of the plant. Instrumentation firm Vaisala writes.
