Background

The market for thermal treatment and energetic recovery of residual and other types of solid waste is growing continuously. Increasing waste amounts, shrinking landfill spaces in agglomerations and higher ecological standards stimulate this growth throughout the world.Today, more than 2,450 WtE plants are active worldwide. They have a disposal capacity of around 330 million tons of waste per year. More than 250 thermal treatment plants with a capacity of nearly 60 million annual tons were constructed between 2012 and 2016. We estimate more than 2,700 plants with a capacity of about 480 million annual tons to be operational by 2026.
