The large waste-to-energy plant in Copenhagen, Amager Bakke, has dealt with scandals in recent times as both the budget and the volumes of waste have been exceeded. One of the plant's major suppliers, Vølund, has made a big impairment of DKK 220 million (EUR 29.5 million) due to technical issues, and it seems that the managing director will take the fall.

Danish newspaper Jydske Vestkysten reports that John Veje Olesen, Managing Director of Vølund, was asked Thursday to pack his things and leave his office. Veje Olesen confirms to Jydske Vestkysten that he was let go, but he declines to comment on the matter.
