Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, Amager Resource Center in Copenhagen is a new breed of waste-to-energy plant, transforming an industrial utility into an awe-inspiring public space complete with a ski slope.
Touted as the cleanest waste-to-energy plant in the world, the 241-square-metre centre will provide 97 percent of homes with heating, and reduce sulphur dioxide emissions by 99.5 percent and nitrous oxide by 90 percent compared with the plant it will replace. And the minimal emissions it does produce will form something of a public service announcement on air pollution: its smokestack will emit five smoke rings for every tonne of CO2 output.
Amager is part of Copenhagen’s plan to become the world’s first zero-carbon city by 2025.
