Waste to energy Market - Overview
The world is currently facing challenges arising out of shortage of conventional fossil fuels and degradation of the environment. In order to overcome these issues, renewable energy resources are being used increasingly. The need to produce energy from renewable resources has risen. Waste-to-energy (WtE) is a type of renewable energy. It is a process wherein energy is generated from the treatment of waste, thereby turning waste into a source of power generation.
The energy produced from this process is similar to that produced by using coal, natural gas, or oil. The waste-to-energy process is expected to reduce landfilling of municipal solid wastes (MSWs) by 90%, which can further reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Japan and Germany are major countries in terms of waste treatment for energy recovery. Japan converts approximately 65% of its waste into energy. The share of waste disposed of in landfills is nearly 3%; the rest of it is either recycled or composted. Germany is the world’s first major renewable energy economy, as it extensively uses renewable energy for power, heating, and transport. More than 120 waste-to-energy plants were operating in Germany by the end of 2016.
