Waste to Energy Business
Wednesday, January 30, 2008
EngineerLive.com presented a very interesting news which is related to my previous post about Doxford - Volume Potable Water and Power Production. The topic "Waste-to-Energy Market is Booming" is so catchy that it attracted my attention to read the report.
If previously, waste is considered an unwanted commodity, the technology may change our perception towards it. Waste can be minimized or eliminated and at the same time produce precious energy. This is truly a wonderful opportunity for those who can innovate, introduce and make the technology commercially viable.
The following report is from EngineerLive.com:
Waste management in Europe is no longer a haulage and disposal business. The legislative shifts of the past decade have seen major moves towards the implementation of advanced technology and innovative recycling solutions.
With landfill finally being truly on the way out, there are genuine opportunities for investment in value-adding solutions. In spite of the importance of waste minimization schemes, as well as recycling and biological waste treatment, many local and regional authorities currently view waste to energy (thermal waste incineration with energy recovery) as the only viable large scale alternative to landfill.
According to Frost & Sullivan studies in this sector, the waste to energy market in Europe is growing and will continue to do so for at least 10 years. Europe’s waste to energy capacity is expected to increase by around 13 million tonnes. Almost 100 new plants will come on line by 2012.
