Amager Bakka, Copenhagen

Amager Bakka (Amager Hill), also known as Amager Slope or Copenhill, is a combined production of heat and waste energy into plant energy and sports facility in Amager, Copenhagen, Denmark. It opened in 2017 and partially replaced a nearby old waste incineration plant in Amager, which is in the process of being converted from coal to biomass (expected to be completed in 2020).  These two plants play an important role in Copenhagen's efforts to reduce carbon emissions by 2025. 

the avod opened on March 30, 2017.  It is estimated at 670 million dollars and is expected to incinerate 400,000 tons of solid waste per year. It also houses a sports complex designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group with an 85 m (279 ft) sloping roof that serves as a year-round artificial ski slope, hiking slope and climbing wall that opened to the public on October 4-6, 2019. Technically, it is designed to vary between modes of operation, producing 0-63 MW of electricity and 157-247 MW of central heating depending on local demand for heat and electricity prices. It produces more clean water than it uses. Through filtration and other technologies, it is expected to reduce sulphur emissions by 99.5% and NO x by about 95%, as well as dioxin and HCl emissions, and is considered the cleanest incineration plant in the world. 

The peculiarity of this facility will be the fact that the chimney is not designed for continuous output of exhaust gases, but in the form of "smoke" rings (consisting of water vapor, not actual smoke).
