Waste-to-energy technology refers to the process of generating energy from any waste material. The energy created from waste may take the form of heat, electricity or transport fuel. Growing concerns across the globe regarding the recycling of waste to preserve the environment and to satisfy the rising demand for electricity is driving the adoption of waste-to-energy technologies. Waste-to-energy technology is currently most frequently used for Municipality Solid Waste (MSW). Presently, more than half of the world’s population resides in urban areas. The rise of global urbanization coupled with the growing population has prompted the increased adoption of MSW. However, the high cost of these technologies, the complexity involved in integrating the system and stringent environmental regulations are factors which limit the growth of this market. Governments across the globe are attempting to create awareness regarding this technology. They are also providing financial aid and schemes to promote the adoption of waste-to-energy technologies. The report analyzes key companies operating in the waste-to-energy technology market. These include the Austrian energy and environment group GMBH, Arrow Ecology Ltd, Essent N.V., Fisia BaBcock Environment GMBH, Flexenergy LLC, Energy-G Plc, Emery Energy Company, ZE-Gen, Tiru, Takuma, Pacific Renewable Fuel, Inc. and Martin GMBH.
