Things on a massive scale

Over the next four years, an average of three ships per month will call into port at the newly established working harbour in Rødby. The ships come from Norway and are loaded with crushed stone to be used as aggregate for the Fehmarn tunnel. If it were to be delivered overland, it would require over 100,000 truck loads. The CO2 emissions and the wear and tear on the roads would be enormous, and it is positive that the Fehmarn project utilizes the possibility of sea transport.

Aalborg Portland has launched a new type of cement that emits 20 percent less CO2. The Fehmarn construction will have a CO2 footprint visible from the moon. Therefore, it is important that all possibilities to reduce it are brought into play.
