The world produces ever more waste. To protect natural resources, transforming the economy towards circularity—and ensuring an efficient infrastructure to do so—is critica
We close the loop on waste
We support our clients’ efforts to achieve resource efficiency, material circularity, regulatory compliance, optimise resource flows, and ensure the safe handling, treatment and disposal of waste that cannot re-enter the material loop.
In this way, waste infrastructure – such as recycling stations and landfills – is central to conserving limited natural resources and ensuring a sustainable future.

Amager Bakke: leader in waste-to-energy
A 10-year partnership between Ramboll and Copenhagen-based utility pushes the envelope for carbon capture, circular economy, and energy from waste, at the world's most efficient waste-to-energy plant.
Carbon capture for net-zero Copenhagen
Full-scale carbon capture plant at Copenhagen waste-to-energy facility, Amager Bakke, that will capture 500,000 tonnes of CO2 annually by end 2025, helping the Danish capital become carbon neutral.
What we offer
We advise clients plan, design, tender and supervise recycling and transfer stations. And we train staff at advanced resource recovery and waste treatment and disposal facilities.
Circular business models
We support industries and businesses develop circular business models that preserve materials. In this way, we support clients in ‘greening’ their supply chain, which is fast becoming a differentiator in many industries.
We work with public and private sector clients on landfill projects – ranging from municipal solid waste landfills to industrial and hazardous waste landfills as well as radioactive materials. Using a risk-based approach, we tailor evaluations of existing landfills. This provides opportunities to extend the lifetime of assets, reduce costs and bring landfills into regulatory compliance.
It's about action now: not in 2025
The world is facing a climate emergency. While climate related targets are set with a 20+ year timeframe, businesses are already being impacted today by climate change. It’s clear that businesses must adapt now: not only to provide the best possible chance of reaching zero carbon targets, but also to ensure they remain successful and profitable in a climate-impacted world.

Circular Economy Taxonomy: Why we need to speak the same language
Why would we not wish to design-out waste and pollution, keep resources in flow or regenerate natural systems? As a society, as businesses? If these key principles of the circular economy make such sense, why is the transition moving so slowly? This article explores why and advocates for adopting a new, common language via EU’s circular economy taxonomy.
