Sustainable Urban Development
As part of Naestved municipality, Ressource City has applied for and granted 8 million Danish kroner from EU to the project Sustainable Urban Development. With a collective 16 million Danish kroner, the project divides into two smaller projects: Innovative SMEs and Waste Optimisation and Energy Reduction. You can read more about those by choosing which in the menu. The project has a 3-year expand (2018 - 2020).
We find great support in Nastved Erhverv, DTU Diplom (Center for Bachelor of Engineering Studies), AffaldPlus, Zealand Institute of Business and Technology and Naestved Varmevaerk as our project partners.

The project Sustainable Urban Development support the upgrading skills of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), especially in the building and construction sector in Naestved. To create a greener Naestved and Denmark the project encourage and increase innovative solutions for a better use of waste and debris. Our focus is mainly reutilisation and optimisation of building rubbles; however, other companies with innovative green ideas have the opportunity of support.
With the large amount of waste and the general focus on environmentally friendly and sustainable construction, the building and construction sector possess a great development potential. With extensive experiences and a network in the field of, for example, glass recycling, the project is able to help creating new business opportunities and innovation in the field of green solutions in construction.
Waste optimisation and energy reduction
Sustainable Urban Development works determined and purposeful with waste optimisation and reduction of the energy usage in Naestved City.
Waste optimisation occur with the waste prevention measures and management in the cities where we mainly focus on recycling and (re)utilisation and the existing quantity of waste.
The project also work determinedly on energy reduction and energy efficiency improvement in the buildings of Naestved. This goes through a testing procedure of new methods and technology in municipal buildings.
To ensure a better energy utilisation in public and private pipeline district heating users, Sustainable Urban Development institute tangible initiatives and campaigns by using new technologies. We focus primarily on the uncomplicated solutions relative to an immediate energy cutback and direct reduction of CO2.
Collaboration between the projects
There lies a synergy potential between the smaller projects of Sustainable Urban Development. The synergy becomes more visible concurrently with Naestved Municipality reprocessing and utilising the obtained data about the accessible waste quantity and – sorts, also including planned renovation – and civil engineering works. Thus far, local building and construction companies can bring in new and sustainable green solutions as well as the development of new company areas. It is because of this synergy the intentional effects obtained in the development project.
Knowledge Centre for Circular Economy
Circular economy is still maturing where mediation of the latest knowledge and experiences in the field are essential to make the green conversion a reality. A knowledge centre will support Danish business’ conversion into circular economy through practical knowledge mediation and sharing experiences. It makes it easier for the companies to navigate in and to implement business opportunities in field of circular economy.
Ressource City will establish a Knowledge Centre for Circular Economy that will work as a hub for knowledge and bridge building for companies that wish to work on the green conversion.
Collection and mediation of knowledge is the focus area of the project in terms of us doing our best to support local and regional companies and enterprises in their green conversion and development. By collection our knowledge and experiences in a hub, we create a centre of rotation that brings together the local and regional companies.
In the autumn of 2018, the Knowledge Centre for Circular Economy is launched.
