    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

     

    Recently, Ramboll, in collaboration with The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYCDEP), launched a 'Cloudburst Resiliency Planning Study'. The study provides insight on ways for New York City to advance climate resiliency projects and traditional stormwater solutions to mitigate inland flooding and accommodate future increase in rainfall intensity through integration with ongoing urban planning development.

  • Iconic Amager Bakke delivers high-efficient energy from waste, recycling and recovery with a recreational touch

    Type: 
    Publication

    Objective:
    Sectors:

    The multi-functional Amager Bakke waste-to-energy facility in Copenhagen raises the bar for resource optimisation with an energy efficiency of 107% and high potential for recycling and recovery. On top, it literally offers an inventive recreational space with ski slopes and climbing walls.

    All over Europe, countries are working hard to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels in power and heat production. Meanwhile, a large share of the energy supply will be based on fossil fuels for decades to come.

    Director Jens Kallesøe from Afatek grabs a ballpoint pen and starts to dismantle it.

    “This ordinary ballpoint pen contains four different materials: On the outside is a belly belt and a clip, both made of stainless steel. Two pieces of plastic tubing hold it all together. Inside is an ink tube made of plastic. One end has a stainless steel spring, and the other a small brass piece, where the ink comes out. So we found two types of plastic and two types of metal with sizes down to 1 mm,” he says, now with four different pen pieces in his hands.

  • Securing supply and diversifying the energy mix in Morocco

    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    In a joint venture with French partner Sofregaz, Ramboll will develop an integrated gas-to-power project for Morocco’s state power and water utility ONEE.

    Ramboll and Sofregaz will be the technical advisor on the project, which will enable Morocco to secure and provide affordable energy supply while taking the next steps towards carbon-reduced energy supply.

  • Urban resilience study for Asian Development Bank

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The Asia Pacific region is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, and at the same time the region is increasingly exposed to the risks of climate change. Hence, substantial investments are needed in order to reduce carbon emissions and enhance resilience in the region's largest urban areas.

  • Ramboll develops a new integrated water master plan for Bucharest

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    In order to further improve the water systems in the Romanian capital, Ramboll has been assigned to develop a master plan with recommendations for future investments in water supply, sewerage and climate adaptation.

    Apa Nova Bucuresti, the concessionaire of the public water supply and sewerage services in Bucharest, wants to make the city's water systems even more efficient and sustainable. To obtain this goal, they have engaged Ramboll to make a comprehensive master plan for a large geographical area covering the city center and a suburban area.

  • Reducing adverse air flow

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    With more than half the Earth’s population now living in urban areas, some changes in the indoor and outdoor climates of cities are bound to occur. Climate scientists’ greatest concern is traditionally the urban heat island (UHI) effect – city areas where temperatures can be several degrees higher because there is lots of concrete and little blue or green infrastructure like lakes, rivers and parks. But another effect – air flow – can also cause serious health problems.

  • Innovative approach to mine water decontamination

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    Ramboll Environ developed an innovative, sustainable and economically beneficial approach to addressing the impact of metal contamination on river sediments in the River Nent in Cumbria.

  • EU will inspire Asian cities on liveability

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    On a global basis cities are growing and changing so fast that many authorities are struggling to cope. More people can mean more economic activity and wealth, but it can also mean added strain on energy, water, health, transport and housing facilities. All this, in turn, puts pressure on the environment, and more widely on climate change.
