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, around 2,450 WtE plants are active worldwide. They have a disposal capacity of around 368 million tons of waste per year. Only in 2018, more than 60 new thermal treatment plants have been installed with a total treatment capacity of more than 14 million tpy. We estimate nearly 2,700 plants with a capacity of more than 530 million tpy to be operational by 2028.
