Vestforbrænding operates Denmark's largest waste-to-energy plant. All waste that is not recycled and that is suitable for this treatment option is incinerated.

The energy from waste incineration is used in the production of power and district heating – and thus substitutes fossil fuels elsewhere.

in Denmark waste incineration and flue gas treatment is strictly monitored and regulated under laws, directives and orders regarding waste incineration. Vestforbrænding comply all regulations.
