Description


Waste to energy is a technique used to convert municipal solid waste generated from various domestic, commercial and industrial users into energy. Different technologies are used to process waste and each technology has a different course of action, but the end product is in the form of electricity, steam and fuel cell. The energy generated from waste is used by various sectors including residential, commercial and industrial. Recycle and reuse of solid waste being generated is the first preference by any country to reduce the amount of waste being treated. Recycle and reuse of waste helps in the recovery of monetary value from various types of waste being generated such as tin cans, plastic, etc.
The waste to energy market report by Transparency Market Research provides in-depth analysis of the global waste to energy industry. The report segments the market on the basis of technology and region and provides forecasts and estimates for each segment. The report also provides detailed forecast and analysis of revenue over the forecasted period 2013 to 2019.

Thermal technology has captured the market for waste to energy due to its ability to reduce the volume and weight of waste. The technology has been popular from many years and majority of waste to energy plants use this technology due to its relatively simple technology and operation. Improvements have been made in thermal technology to reduce the amount of gas contaminants from flue gas and meet the various regulatory norms. Other thermal technology such as Pyrolysis and Gasification has limited use due to their feed selectivity and high cost. Research has been going on to improve these technologies and make them cost effective. Biological technology which consists of anaerobic digestion of municipal solid waste is lagging behind in terms of market share as well as revenue, but the technology is promising in the near future.

Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, and Rest of the World (RoW) are the major geographic areas covered in the waste to energy report. European counties such as Germany, Austria, Sweden, Belgium and Netherlands are very much active to promote waste to energy practices and have reduced the amount of waste being dumped or land filled in respective countries. Asia pacific is currently leading the market and country like Japan is very promising with incinerating more than 60 percent of their waste generated and keeps landfill to minimum. Even the transportation of municipal waste to a long distance is not allowed in Japan which provides an opportunity to a large number of waste to energy plants. Other countries like China and India have a great potential for waste generation due to huge amount of waste generated by their large population and the investment in these countries is also increasing to treat their municipal waste and enhance their quality of life. Each geographical region has been segmented further on the basis of the technology and revenue, forecasts and estimates for each segment have been provided over the forecasted period 2013 to 2019.

The report provides a thorough analysis of some key companies such as The Babcock & Wilcox Company, Foster Wheeler AG, KEPPEL SEGHERS, Veolia Environnement, Suez Environment S.A, and Waste Management Inc. The report provides a detailed analysis of the various factors influencing the waste to energy industry with the help of Porter’s five force analysis. The analysis helps to understand the bargaining power of buyers, bargaining power of suppliers, threats from new entrant, threats from the substitutes and the degree of competition in the market. The report also analyses the value chain of the market and the various drivers, restrains and opportunity of the waste to energy market.

Free Market Analysis


Waste to energy is a technique used to produce energy in the form of electricity and heat. The benefits of the technique include reduction in the amount of waste to be sent to landfills, and extracting value from waste. Asia-Pacific region with developing countries such as Japan, China and India is dominating the waste to energy market. Japan has the highest level of sustainable waste management with a capacity to convert more than 60 percent of waste to energy. China and India, the two most populated countries of the world have a potential to generate huge amount of waste and provide feed to waste to energy plants. These countries are developing and are focusing on their waste to energy practices to improve the quality of life. These countries are shifting from landfills or open dumping of solid waste to a more environment friendly option of waste to energy to reduce GHG emission.

European countries used to be market leaders in the waste to energy market and are highly advanced in treating their solid waste. However, the market in the European region is stagnant and investment in waste to energy plants has decreased especially after the European crisis. Countries such as Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden, Austria, and Germany have reduced their dependency on landfills. The amount of waste being land filled by these countries is less than 1%.

Waste to energy market is driven by various factors such as energy security, increased landfill tax, and GHG emission from landfills. Apart from these factors, grants or incentives provided by the government to waste to energy facilities is one of the major factors leading to the growth of the market. Waste to energy is considered as a renewable source of energy and is promoted by various government policies. These policies are launched to attract investors to this market and increase the share of renewable energy. Some of the programs launched by the U.S. Department of Energy and Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality are Waste Energy Recovery Incentive Grant Program, and Waste Reduction and Recycling Incentive Grants Fund respectively. Landfill tax has been increased by the governments in North America and Europe which has promoted the use of waste to energy techniques. But this varies from country to country. In the U.K, the tax on landfill for active waste has increased from Euro 64 per ton in 2012 to Euro 72 per ton in 2013.

The waste to energy market is segmented into thermal and biological technologies. Thermal technology is preferred over biological as it is not very selective towards the type of feed processed in the plant and also reduces the volume and weight of waste recovered in the form of ash. However, variation in the type of feed being processed in an incineration plant will affect the efficiency of the plant. Biological plants which convert waste to energy using anaerobic digestion are able to process waste which is biodegradable and has high moisture content, and hence are mostly preferred by farmers.

The Babcock & Wilcox Company, Constructions industrielles de la Méditerranée (CNIM), C&G Environmental Protection Holdings Ltd., China Everbright International Limited, Foster Wheeler AG, Xcel Energy, KEPPEL SEGHERS, Veolia Environnement, Suez Environment S.A, and Waste Management Inc. are some of the key players in the waste to energy market.
