DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 21, 2022--

The “Waste to Energy Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027” report has been added to’s offering.

The global waste to energy market reached a value of US$ 38.87 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, the market is set to reach a value of US$ 56.49 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.43% during 2021-2027

Waste to energy (WSE) refers to the process of converting non-recyclable waste materials into usable heat, fuel, or electricity through processes, such as combustion, gasification, devolatilization, anaerobic digestion, and landfill gas recovery. It relies on different systems or technologies for producing electricity by burning unprocessed municipal solid waste in an incinerator with a boiler and a generator.

At present, it is considered a critical component of the waste management system as WSE helps mitigate climate change, reduce greenhouse gases (GHG), and minimize environmental impact and health damages.


Waste to Energy Market Trends:

At present, landfill waste represents a global environmental concern as it causes fires or explosions, contaminates soil and water, and leads to climate change, toxins, leachate, and GHG emissions.

This, in confluence with the increasing industrial waste generation every year, represents one of the key factors driving the need for WSE technologies as a sustainable alternative to landfills for waste disposal. These technologies also assist in avoiding methane from landfills, recovering metals for recycling, and offsetting emissions from fossil fuel electrical production.

Apart from this, rapid industrialization, rising population, growing urbanization, and the economic expansion of developing countries are resulting in accelerating rates of municipal solid waste (MSW) production.

As a result, governing agencies of numerous countries are undertaking several steps and incorporating WSE technologies to manage the accumulation of MSW and generate energy from its combustion for residential and commercial uses.

Furthermore, the launch of new technologies like hydrothermal carbonization (HTC), which fast-tracks the slow process of geothermal conversion of wet waste with an acid catalyst at high pressure, is anticipated to create a favorable market outlook.
