In Brazil, the power generation from municipal solid waste (MSW) market is incipient. Currently, biogas and incineration are the two operational technologies, and these are the segments considered in this study. The market depends on government incentives and still lacks regulation on project implementation and pricing. However, international financing and government plans are driving the market. Installed capacity for biogas technology is expected to increase until the end of the forecast period (2016). Incineration technology, currently in the prototype stage, is expected to grow in profitability. Forecasts for revenue and installed capacity are included for the forecast period.

Executive Summary

- Brazilian power generation from municipal solid waste (MSW) comprises two types: biogas and incineration.

- Revenue for the whole market will have a X percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR 2011-2016) due mostly to government support for price increases.

- Currently, the installed capacity for the biogas segment is only X megawatts (MW), but this is expected to reach X MW by the end of 2016. The total possible installed potential in Brazil for the segment READ MORE >
