Ski slope on waste treatment plant in Copenhagen
Writer TEAMAX Date 2020/05/19 Hit 51

What to do with the mountain of garbage a major metropolitan area produces is an age-old question. Copenhagen has come up with a brand-new answer: ski down the mountain.

Well, not exactly. The waste is actually inside Copenhill, a waste-treatment plant 10 minutes from downtown Copenhagen. Its main facility is a futuristic building with a sloping roof 85 metres high that's covered in a material called neveplast. It looks just like a ski slope, except it's green.

"It's a fantastic experience in the middle of a city to be able to do what you do like the most," said visiting skier Pelle Hansen. "Instead of having to go six, seven, eight or ten hours to a ski destination, you can be here in ten minutes."
