Denmark in numbers

In Denmark the amount of Used Beverage Cartons (UBC), if collected and recycled (35-40%), is approx. 15.000 tons/year which amounts to over 575 million packages consumed annually.

 

If the carton fibers were recycled in a papermill as done outside Denmark, that would leave 3.750 tons of PolyAl (Polyethylene combined with Aluminum) per year which normally would go to incineration facilities. However, from the 1st of July 2021 Denmark is to collect this waste fraction on a consumer level (in the public).

With the use of our equipment, we can change the profit from a negative price (due to incineration fee etc.) to a plus price along with supporting the environment and reducing CO2.

In Denmark we would:

  • Change the market price from negative to positive.

  • Produce hydrogen gas for energy (Power-To-X) which would amount to 2,5 tons per year - free.

  • Reduce CO2 by recycling the plastic inside the UBC which would amount to 7.500 tons CO2 per year or reduce the excepted Danish incineration facilities level in 2030 with 0,5%.

  • Supply green and recycled Aluminate to treat/clean wastewater at the national wastewater facilities with 50.500 tons per year.

Globally

Approx. 235 billion food and beverage packages were sold last year (2020) in the various clusters around the world:

Europe & Central Asia:

  • 70,6 billion packages -> 458 thousand tons PolyAl

Americas:

  • 58,8 billion packages -> 382 thousand tons PolyAl

Asia Pacific:

  • 82,3 billion packages -> 535 thousand tons PolyAl

Greater Middle East & Africa:

  • 23,5 billion packages -> 153 thousand tons PolyAl

Using our equipment the various clusters could then boost their economy along with reducing the CO2 level as follows:

Europe & Central Asia:

  • 2,9 million tons CO2 per year -> Profit 20,6 million euro per year

Americas:

  • 0,8 million tons CO2 per year -> Profit 17,2 million euro per year

 

Asia Pacific:

  • 0,6 million tons CO2 per year -> Profit 24,1 million euro per year

 

Greater Middle East & Africa:

  • 1,0 million tons CO2 per year -> Profit 6,9 million euro per year

The global CO2 reduction if all used beverage cartons were recycled by our equipment would be 0,007% globally and 0,078% of Europe’s emissions (2019).
