District heating generated through incineration of waste causes much lower CO2 emissions than most other heating forms.
Of the energy produced from waste incineration 80 % is turned into district heating and 20 % becomes power. Waste thus substitutes fossil fuels elsewhere.

Vestforbrænding is currently extending its district heating grid radically towards the north and the west.
