Denmarks largest port wants to be bigger. But the 1000 extra container vessels and hundreds of thousands of trucks are not found in the calculation of the climate consequences. In recent months, hundreds of citizens have protested against a planned expansion of the Port of Aarhus. The port is Denmark’s largest and accounts for about two thirds of container ship and freight traffic in Denmark, but over the coming years, the port according to the company behind will be expanded from the current 2,800,000 square meters to 3,800,000, while the amount of containers and goods is expected to increase by 50 percent.
