The plant Nordforbrænding is owned by five municipalities (Hørsholm, Allerød, Fredensborg, Elsinore, and Rudersdal) in the northern part of Zealand in Denmark covering a population of approximately 200,000 inhabitants. Nordforbrænding contracted a new waste-to-energy line to be completed in 2016.
The new waste-to-energy line will be based on our NextBAT® technology securing a very high energy recovery and very low emissions. The R1 value is actually more than 100% above the threshold value of 0.65. After completion of the new furnace line 5 in August 2016, the plant will produce heat and power from line 4 and 5 only and replace the existing three worn down B&W Vølund lines from 1969 and 1989. The existing furnace line 4, from 1998, will remain in operation.
The new line 5 naturally fulfills all requirements that will be presented in the coming waste incineration BREF in 2013. This is the core of our NextBAT® technology.
Nordforbrænding is located in the middle of Hørsholm, an affluent northern suburb of Copenhagen, and has been accepted by the neighbors as a good solution to waste management and energy supply.
