Amager Bakke | Copenhagen's Eye-catching Waste-to-Energy Innovation

Copenhagen's Amager Bakke is easy on the eyes and easy on the planet. The "Amager Hill" (also referred to as Amager Slope and Copenhill) is part heat/power waste-to-energy plant and part sports facility. Designed by architect Bjarke Ingels, the facility opened in 2017 and burns through 70 tons of trash each hour which produces hot water and energy for 120,000 homes in the city. Oh, and Ingels included a footpath and ski slope on the building's roof. Multitasking at it's best.
