Denmark – WtE Facility
Construction of the largest WtE facility in Northern Europe
The Danish Government and Hvidovre Municipality are in the process of planning the largest land reclamation project in Scandinavia, involving the development of nine new artificial islands just south of Copenhagen.
The largest has been reserved as the location for Northern Europe’s largest waste-to-energy (WtE) plant and will also be home to biowaste and wastewater treatment facilities. The plant will produce the equivalent of 25% of Copenhagen’s power consumption.

US – Biomass Facility
Development of a biomass heating facility and transmission system
Dartmouth College is looking to build a new biomass energy heating facility and transmission system to replace its existing central heating system. It is expected to cost upwards of US$200 million and will mark a major step in the university’s commitment to reduce its environmental impact.
A site for the plant is expected to be selected in the next few months, with operations commencing by late 2025.

In the Germany edition of our Global Waste Investment Fact File, we highlight 164 projects currently active in the country. These have a total value of US$6,398 million.
Key points from this Fact File
- Incineration (with energy recovery) is the leading project type, accounting for US$2,270 million or 35% of the total. This is followed by recycling, accounting for US$1,352 million or 21% of the total.
- The total estimated capacity of these projects is 17.3 million tonnes. This is equal to 105,376 tonnes per project on average and 33% of Germany’s annual waste generation.
- Waste investments totalling US$2,431 million are expected to become operational in the next few years. This is currently expected to peak in 2020 at US$599 million.

Brazil – Biomass & Pellet Plant
Construction of a 50 MW biomass plant and pellet plant
The environmental protection agency in Rio Grande do Sul has issued the environmental licence for a wood pellet plant and biomass project.
32 MW of power produced at the biomass facility will be provided to the pellet plant, which will use agricultural and wood waste as feedstock.
Construction is expected to begin later in 2018 and take up to two years to complete.
