WASTE IS MORE

Share on facebook

Waste is more! This  week we had a start-up meeting for the new book on Amager Bakke.
Amager Bakke is set to become the most modern environmentally-friendly waste-to-energy plant, with a ski hill on its roof! Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group.

Amager Resource Center converts waste into power and heat. It is one of the world’s most eco-friendly plants, with high energy, efficient flue gas cleaning. It is also the first facility in Denmark to be equipped with a catalyst to remove NOx.

The idea of integrating recreation into an industrial plant or scale has never been tried before and has thus attracted international attention, which represents the best of innovative Danish architectures, urban planning and landscape design. The bold design by BIG intensifies the relationship between the building and the city by turning the roof of the structure into an urban “mountain”, suitable for year-round skiing, hiking and other activities for citizens and visitors. Amager Bakke is both iconic, integrated, a destination in itself and a reflection on the progress vision of green energy.

The book will be launched in June 2019.
