Waste to Energy 2013/2014 – The World Market for Waste Incineration Plants

The annually publish the study “Waste to Energy”, which is the world's largest data collection and analysis of the market for thermal waste utilisation.

Throughout the world, there are almost 2,200 WtE plants. They have a disposal capacity of about 255 million tons of waste per year. By 2017, approximately about 180 plants with a capacity of around 52 million annual tons will be additionally constructed.

The study “Waste to Energy 2013/2014” was again elaborated together with specialists and industry experts from all over the world. It shows how WtE works, how to plan a WtE project and describes market shares and players among operators and plant manufacturers. It analyses established markets such as Germany or Scandinavia as well as the growth markets in China, Great Britain and Poland.

This study is the foundation for the industry to quickly and extensively catch up on the market for operating and constructing plants for the thermal utilisation of solid municipal waste.
