Our ESG ambition
JESPER FROST RASMUSSEN
The project crosses an important milestone and I would like to congratulate Quantafuel on purchasing a site that matches the needs of the company. From the beginning, Quantafuel has been aware of the possibilities in Esbjerg, and I am very pleased that the final formalities are falling into place. In 2030, Esbjerg Municipality will be CO2-neutral, and as Denmark’s sustainable EnergyMetropolis, our ambitions remain high. In this respect, we are gaining a skilled partner in Quantafuel, because the company shares our commitment to the green transition.

ReSource will improve recycling of plastic and reducing the amount that goes to incineration will the reduce the CO2e-emission on 2 accounts;
Replacement of virgin plastic from fossil oil and avoided incineration will both reduce carbon emissions.
