Billund Biorefinery

“Waste and wastewater are not problems – they are resources that offer immense potential for the environment.” This is the philosophy behind Billund BioRefinery, which combines the strongest environmental technologies in water treatment and biogas in a significant full-scale demonstration project.

When Aarhus University tested the carbon dioxide (CO2) footprint of the new water treatment technologies, the plant’s CO2 footprint was negative, which means that the balance between green and black energy is shifting in the right direction. This was very useful knowledge for the company.

“It’s important to be ahead in knowledge about how we calculate our water treatment plant’s CO2 footprint. This sends a good signal to the world around us.”
