The first large-scale plastic sorting facility in Denmark is under construction. We will make plastic waste into a valuable ReSource, reducing CO2 emissions
and contributing to a circular economy.

ReSource will have the capacity to sort 160,000 tons of waste – with a focus on post-consumer plastic – every year and will be a major contributor for Denmark and other EU countries to meet their recycling goals for plastic waste. The plant is set up to provide full traceability from waste collection to final product. Come join us on this journey!

The plant

ReSource will have a total capacity to process 160,000 tons of plastic per year using state-of-the-art sorting technology.

The plant is currently under construction and on track to be completed by the end of 2023 and in full operation in the beginning of 2024.

A Gamechanger

ReSource by the numbers

ReSource will be a game-changer for the plastic waste market in Denmark. The sorting facility is expected to significantly contribute towards reaching the EU and Denmark’s recycling targets.

Currently around 85% of Denmark’s plastic waste is either incinerated or exported. The Danish government has set the goal to recycle 80% of plastic by 2030. Today, Denmark incinerates 370,000 tons of plastic waste on an annual basis. If action is not taken, incineration plants will account for approximately 3.6% of the national emissions.

ReSource has the potential to reduce 520,000 tons of CO2 emissions from 2024 to 2028 and make a huge impact on Denmark’s recycling targets.
