Geminor expands operations with new HUB in the port of Aalborg

Geminor's new HUB in Aalborg will increase treatment and storage capacity, and ensure good logistics of Danish and international waste fractions in the years to come.

During the month of October, Geminor DK will open a new HUB for the treatment and storage of various fractions of waste in Aalborg, Denmark. The current Geminor HUB in the region, which has existed since 2016, is now closing and operations will be moved to a plot of almost 6,000 square meters in the Eastern port.

The opening of a new HUB in Aalborg has been planned for almost two years, says Country Manager in Geminor DK, Kasper Thomsen.

– Increasing activity in the region gave us a chance to expand our capacity, and building a new HUB in the port of Aalborg is a natural response to this. The HUB will have a new hall of 2,000 square meters, and the entire operating area will give us capacity to handle around 10,000 tonnes of waste simultaneously, says Thomsen.

Railway tracks have been laid in the new HUB, making transport possible either by bulk carrier, truck or rail transport.

New fractions
All the necessary requirements, such as environmental permits, are now in place to expand operations, says Kasper Thomsen.

– Our recent investments make us able to serve the Danish waste market both upstream and downstream. Previously, our operations only included RDF and SRF for delivery, but now the plan is to sort, grind, shred and export several types of fractions. Our first move will be to handle paper, cardboard, waste wood and plastic waste, says Geminor Country Manager Thomsen.

– We expect to be able to handle 60,000 tonnes of waste annually, which will go to both energy recovery and material recycling. New and larger contracts in the region gives us incentive to increase our presence, and with the new HUB we commit to operations in a long-term perspective, concludes Country Manager in Geminor DK, Kasper Thomsen.
