Waste is a resource

Organic household waste

Your bin under the kitchen sink is full of energy, and it is common and green sense to use it sensibly.

The organic waste can be converted into biogas that can be used for electricity or heating, or e.g. for biofuel in cars in line with natural gas. Parts of the waste are genuine energy bombs, and the secret is to create the most efficient mixture that provides the optimum utilisation of the energy.

It all begins with a proper sorting of the waste at each individual consumer followed up by an effective treatment and gasification of the waste. Billund BioRefinery’s partner, Billund Vand, has a long and extensive experience that is quite unique – also internationally.

In Billund Municipality we have established the most well-functioning system which has been in operation since 1997, and we cooperate with several municipalities to popularise the system. Billund BioRefinery shows the way to a better cycle – from table to soil with lots of energy!
