Waste and Biogas Advisory

The Trade Council in North America customizes solutions for companies within waste management and recycling.


Americans generate all-in-all 254 million tons of waste every year – and over 50% of it ends up at the states’ disposal sites. However, this is set to change in the coming years, as mega cities all over the US increase their focus on circular economy and the green transition. Furthermore, disposal tipping fees are increasing, especially in the eastern parts of the US, which have created a market for transportation of waste between states. This is not sustainable, and it costs billions of dollars to dispose the large amounts of waste. In order to optimize the waste management, there is a need for sorting, recycling and resource utilization.

This is where the Danish companies enter the picture. Denmark is experienced and skilled within the environmental sector, and The Danish Trade Council in North America recognizes waste solutions as great export potential for Danish companies. The Waste and Recycle Advisory (WRA) has been established in order to support Danish companies export effort to the North American market.


The Trade Council in North America offers a wide range of export programs, and support Danish companies create valuable alliances. We offer two approaches; the alliance program and an individual program.
