The Copenhagen area is the most industrialized area in Denmark, and it was therefore natural that it was also here that a solution had to be found to the problems caused by pollution originating from waste oil and chemical waste. A committee formed in the 1960s reached the conclusion that the first aim should be to set up a collection plant in Copenhagen and from there ship the waste to a Swedish company, AB Industridestillation in Stockholm, which was willing to receive and treat the waste. Later it was planned, in cooperation with a larger circle of municipalities, to consider the idea of establishing a treatment plant connected to the collection plant in Copenhagen.
