Quantafuel and Eurazeo have opened ReSource Denmark, a significant plastic sorting facility in Esbjerg, Denmark. The facility can process 160,000 tons of plastic waste annually, enhancing the country's recycling capabilities.

Provided by Eggersmann, the advanced sorting equipment increases recycling rates by removing impurities and categorising plastics for recycling. The facility also sorts metals and food and beverage cartons.

ReSource Denmark is pursuing DGNB Gold certification for its eco-friendly design and construction. It features solar panels, rainwater systems, and energy-efficient lighting and heating. The facility also aims to meet Denmark's recycling targets and reduce plastic incineration.

The facility was inaugurated by Jesper Frost Rasmussen, Esbjerg's mayor, and Marianne Bigum, a Member of the Danish Parliament. Plant Director Lars Hedegaard praised the facility's role in promoting a circular economy.

Jørn Andersen, Quantafuel’s project director, expressed pride in the opening and thanked project contributors, including Rambøll, Jorton, and Eggersmann.
