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.
