ARC and CMP continue to have high ambitions for carbon capture at Amager Bakke, despite rejection from the EU
The EU Innovation Fund has recently identified the projects that will receive a part of €1 billion which will be handed out to innovative projects within the green transition.

Copenhagen’s first shore power facility is inaugurated for the DFDS ferries
A new shore power facility was inaugurated today at the DFDS terminal in Copenhagen by, among others, Copenhagen’s Lord Mayor Lars Weiss. The facility significantly reduces the ships’ CO2 emissions while they are in port, thus ensuring cleaner air for the benefit of the environment and even more so for the neighbours on Østerbro.
Joy at CMP: Cruise tourism opens up further in Denmark

The first cruise ships of the year call the port in Copenhagen
After a long, long wait, the first cruise ships of the season will arrive at our docks in Copenhagen this weekend.
