The purpose of the site is to disseminate knowledge on the comprehensive environmental technology efforts being made by Danish industry, organisations, institutions etc., and, thus, to throw light on the potentials offered by environmentally efficient technology. The Ministry of the Environment wishes to further the dialogue with business, researchers and other stakeholders about ways to ensure that technological efforts may contribute most efficiently to solving a number of environmental problems. The Ministry therefore invites actors who are involved in the process of promoting the environment-technological agenda, to enter into partnerships with the Ministry.

Environmental technologies

Examples include e.g. technology flue gas cleaning, wind turbines, water treatment, enzymes for animal feed and washing powder, biofuel production, energy-efficient pumps and substitution of chemicals with more environmentally friendly solutions.
