Amager Bakke (Amager Hill) also known as Amager Slope is a combined heat and power waste-to-energy plant under construction in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Construction[edit]

The plant is estimated to cost $670 million, is scheduled for construction to be completed in 2017,[1] and is expected to burn 400,000 tons of municipal solid waste annually. It was designed by Bjarke Ingels with a 85 m tall sloped roof that doubles as a ski slope.[2][3] Technically, it is designed to change between operating modes, producing 0-63 MW electricity and 157-247 MW district heating, depending on the local heat demand and power price. It produces more clean water than it uses.

A special feature of this facility will be that the chimney is intended to not emit its exhaust continuously, but instead in the form of smoke rings.
