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 2,500 WtE plants are active worldwide. They have a disposal capacity of around 400 million tons of waste per year. Only in 2019, 83 new thermal treatment plants have been installed with a total treatment capacity of more than 29.8 million tpy. We estimate nearly 2,700 plants with a capacity of more than 550 million tpy to be operational by 2029.
