DuPont makes its Grindsted plant in Denmark carbon-neutral

The DuPont Nutrition & Health plant in Grindsted, Denmark is switching to carbon-neutral production. Three-digit millions of Danish kroner have been invested in a new facility for the plant, bidding farewell to coal and heralding in wood chips. The facility will be officially opened on Monday, 25 September by Lars Chr. Lilleholt, Danish Minister of Energy, Utilities and Climate.

“The investment spells an end to the 45,000 tons or so of carbon dioxide previously emitted by our coal-fired plant. Because the new facility also allows us to supply the district heating network in Grindsted with more surplus heat, thereby displacing fossil fuel in that system too, we are well on the way to removing 64,000 tons of carbon dioxide a year. So, this project allows us to remove more CO2 than we ourselves used to generate,” says Martin K. Madsen, Plant Manager at DuPont Nutrition & Health.
