Andersen and the Environment

Denmark boasts the highest ratio of renewable energy in the world. The government actively supports environmental education conducive to more citizens taking part in ecological activities, creating the ecologically friendly country that it is today.

The Andersen Group is also proactively pursuing environmentally friendly activities, through research into the effective use of waste material in our efforts to recycle energy.

One of these activities is collaborative study involving demonstrational tests on the effective use of food waste. Facilities used for these experiments have been installed in the Takaki Bakery's Chiyoda factory, where bread scraps are gathered and used with special microbes to create methane and hydrogen gas. As hydrogen gas is a type of clean energy usable in fuel batteries, if this technology can be put into practical use, we may see not only a reduction of food waste, but also a new energy source as well.
