Ambitious ‘Waste-to-Energy’ Plant

Over 4,500 m² of rental formwork were provided by PASCHAL Danmark A/S to ensure a smooth construction process.Denmark

Ambitious ‘Waste-to-Energy’ Plant

Copenhagen has set itself the goal of becoming climate neutral by 2025. To ensure that the goal is within reach, waste will be converted to electricity and district heating in the future.

Over 4,500 m² of rental formwork were provided by PASCHAL Danmark A/S to ensure a smooth construction process.

To achieve the ambitious goal and the visionary construction of the 'waste-to-energy facilities', around 30,000 m³ of concrete were necessary, all casted completely with PASCHAL formwork.

At the end of April 2014, 4,500 m² of rented formwork from PASCHAL Danmark A/S’s LOGO system were provided for a smooth construction process.

Climate neutral by 2025

The waste incineration plant is to recycle the entire urban population’s waste from 2017 and simultaneously produce electricity and district heating for up to 150,000 households. This should also raise the awareness of the inhabitants for environmental protection and resource conservation.

Thus, Amager Bakke will not continuously emit the accumulated CO₂; rather it will release one tonne of CO₂ each time in the form of a visible smoke ring.

Triple use

Amager Bakke is intended to be the most up-to-date and environmentally friendly 'waste-to-energy facility' and should also provide Copenhagen’s population with a recreational area.

The plan is to design the roof of the facilities so that it can be used all year round as an artificial ski slope. At a height of 85 metres, the facilities will look like an artificial mountain upon completion and they will also be used as a climbing route.
