Vacuum systems in the Augustemburg neighborhood
Copenhagen, Waste Collection
The Augustemborg neighborhood in Copenhagen was one of the first ones in the world to try this vacuum collection system for non-recycleable items. Waste collection trucks dont need to access every street of this neighborhood, instead they collect all waste in pump stations on the periphery.
The Middelgrunden wind farm in the Copenhagen harbor is located just 1 to 2 miles off the Copenhagen waterfront, and consists of 20 wind turbines at 2 MW each. It is 50 percent owned and financed by a wind co-op of 8,300 members and 50 percent owned by the local utility. Denmark is a leader in this technology, producing more than 20% of all its energy requirements through it.
