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, more than 2,430 WtE plants are active worldwide. They have a disposal capacity of around 360 million tons of waste per year. Only in 2017, more than 80 new thermal treatment plants have been installed with a total treatment capacity of 25 million tons per year. We estimate more than 2,700 plants with a capacity of about 530 million tons per year to be operational by 2027.
