Affald som ressource

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


We are using the resources of the earth faster and faster each year. Therefore, we need to change our way of living. One way to change our way of living, could be recycling the resources we already possess. This project focuses on the collection and recycling of biological waste in Copenhagen.
More specifically this project focuses on a particular area in the centre of Copenhagen called Torvehallerne, which is a food market.
The project contains an interview with Martin Tilsted from Copenhagen Municipality, a questionnaire and a study of the waste in the garbage cans at Torvehallerne. Furthermore, this project contains relevant theories and background knowledge.
This background knowledge actualises our design, because it explains how biological waste can be used to produce biogas which can produce energy and eventually be used as fertilizer. Furthermore, it is explained how this process can be a part of a circular economy. The theories and methods are used to develop our design. Our design is a sorting garbage can, with the purpose to collect and at the same time to sort into fractions of paper, biological waste, glass, plastic and ordinary waste.
