During the visit to Copenhagen, at the invitation of the Danish Energy Agency, representatives of the Ukrainian delegation learned about the work of the powerful Copenhill plant (Amager Bakke), which processes around 400 thousand tons of garbage per year for generating heat and electricity.
The importance of such plants was highlighted by all representatives of the delegation of Ukraine: Ambassador of Ukraine to Denmark Mykhailo Vydoinyk, MP, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada Committee Oleksandr Dombrovsky, Head of the State Agency for Energy Efficiency Sergey Savchuk, representatives of the Ukrainian-Danish Energy Center and Ukrainian and Danish companies.
In particular, the plant has up to 63 MW of electrical capacity and up to 247 MW of thermal power. The plant Copenhill is an architectural wonder and has a huge area for recreation and entertainment, namely - an artificial ski slope and places for rock climbing.
The Ukrainian delegation noted the need to establish such facilities in Ukraine.
About 10 million tons of garbage are collected annually in Ukraine, of which about 94% are exported to landfills.
