Feb 15th, 2020 : Copenhill

Danes had to go to Sweden for downhill skiing but no more, they built one as part of a new trash to steam plant... but there’s more!
The old plant next door, now being torn down, in 2018 supplied heat for 70,000 homes and electricity for 32,000, by burning the
dumping of 200 to 300 garbage trucks a day. Oh, plus the ash is used for roadbeds.
The new plant will also take 95% of the bad shit out of the smoke.



Quote:
Amager Bakke, or CopenHill, as it’s been dubbed, is a 462,848-square-foot waste-to-energy plant—which just happens to have a ski slope on its roof—rising like a glittering aluminum iceberg from the flat plains of a semi-industrial section of Amager (pronounced, inexplicably, “am-ah”), an island that comprises part of the city of Copenhagen.
Standing at the 279-foot summit of what is now one of the city’s tallest structures presents a surreal spectacle: skiers whooshing down a vast carpet of green Neveplast, a synthetic “dry skiing” surface from Italy, amid a staggering panorama that’s dominated by the smokestacks of nearby biomass plants and, behind them, the gloomy, fog-shrouded expanse of the North Sea, dotted with massive wind turbines.


Quote:
CopenHill, which, along with the plant below, is owned by Amager Resource Center (ARC), offers more than skiing. You can simply hike to the summit on the marked trail for the best view in Copenhagen, stopping to admire the wild strawberries growing on landscaped sections to one side of the slope (where a fox was recently spied). You can also run that path up (there’s already a Strava segment). If you’ve any gas left, there are CrossFit bars at the top.


Quote:
Come spring, one of the world’s tallest climbing walls, a twisting and weaving ascent, will open on a corner of the building, which will eventually be laced with green as the structure’s built-in aluminum window boxes begin to bloom.
My mind keeps wondering about liability for all these gung-ho athlete’s injuries?
I guess they have medical so pain and suffering, loss of dignity?

I'd say it's cheaper to cast an arm than pay for the effects of not exercising...

I suspect the power company wants to pay for neither.
