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 2,600 WtE plants are active worldwide. They have a disposal capacity of around 460 million tons of waste per year. Only in 2021, 142 new thermal treatment plants have been installed with a total treatment capacity of 44.4 million tpy. We estimate about 3,000 plants with a capacity of about 630 million tpy to be operational by 2031.
