Environment and Energy Fund Denmark – Support validation of Swestep’s process
Copenhagen politicians, just over three years ago, adopted a plan to start kick the recycling of the capital’s waste and limit the incineration. The plan meant that 45 per cent of household waste would be recycled in 2018, against 27 per cent in 2010. According to an evaluation made by the municipal officials January 2016, the goal could be achieved if one could find suitable technology that could produce renewable fuel/gas and fertilizers of industrial and household waste.
The municipality of Copenhagen is interested in testing the SWESTEP patented CC Process (Catalytic Conversion Process), which is a “Liquefaction Technology”. SWESTEP’s technology can offer sustainable renewable fuel and oil production by converting all forms of hydro carbon based waste and residues to renewable materials, such as synthesis fuels, chemicals, oils and polymers.
The purpose of this project is to validate results from SWESTEP’s technology. The goal is a more cost-effective, climate-friendly and sustainable way of using plastic waste for the production of renewable fuels.

Meeting with Per Boesgaard from the Environmental Department of City of Copenhagen, Hanne Risberg Sørensen and Anders Handlos Grauslund – from REnescience/DONG and Martin Porsgaard and Robert Arendal NISA. (Nordic Initiative for Sustainable Aviation)
The day was divided in two parts: A round tour on location at a pilot REnescience plant and meeting at the office of municipality of Copenhagen.
The dialog around the table was on handling/recycling municipal waste with focus on the plastic residues. Also, discussions were conducted on where a SWESTEP plant could be located, and the meeting led to the conclusions to also include the Airport in Kastrup as part of the project group. A feasibility study starts in the end of this summer to produce a proof of concept on recycling/process plastic and municipal residues to green jet fuel for the aviation industry.
