In 2020 the Danish Randers Municipality invested in a plant that is able to process waste from citizens into a uniform pulp, which can be delivered to the biogas plant at the municipality’s treatment plant.
Randers Municipality purchased a complete Mavitec Paddle Depacker waste processing plant through LSH-Biotech by Christian Dreyer. The plant is in full operation even though the final installations are awaited because the Government and the Folketing are currently working on the Executive Order in the waste area, which will decide who may own such a plant. According to the Climate Plan, a municipality may not own a processing plant.
Senior consultant at Randers Municipality Jørgen Niemann Jensen is not in doubts about what plays a crucial role when the municipality has to make decisions about waste management.
“Like many other municipalities, we are subject to a tight economy, which is why such purchases must be financially responsible and preferably with a short repayment period, says Jørgen Niemann Jensen.”
