ARC — Amager Ressourcecenter is a waste treatment company owned by five municipalities in Copenhagen. They run waste-to-energy plant Amager Bakke, 16 recycling centres, etc., and handle waste from 645,000 citizens and 68,000 companies. In 2020, they incinerated almost 600,000 tons of non-recyclable, residual waste and turned it into 244 GWh electricity and 1.363 GWh district heating.
The vision of ARC is to make waste treatment and incineration net zero/carbon neutral. One step is by implementing an extra cleaning filter that captures CO2 from the flue gas. In collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark, they set up a demonstration project in 2021. This is the first CCS project connected to a waste-to-energy plant in Denmark. The technology behind carbon capture is extremely energy intensive. By integrating CO2 capture into the district heating system, ARCs demonstration project aims to show that CO2 capture can be achieved with neutral energy consumption.
