About This Report


The Waste-to-Energy Plant Operation industry is an integral part of the nation's waste disposal infrastructure and increasingly a source of its renewable energy power. Through the early part of the past five years, the industry struggled through tough economic and regulatory conditions that made substitute landfills and recycling facilities more attractive waste disposal options in parts of the country and caused some firms to struggle with profitability and close facilities. However, renewed public and government interest in the environmental impact of waste disposal and renewable energy generation sparked new investment in WtE facilities and the first return to growth for the industry in more than a decade.

This industry owns and operates waste combustors, or waste-to-energy plants. Waste-to-energy (WtE) is an umbrella term for technologies that are used to create energy out of waste. These processes might include burning certain types of waste to create electricity or capturing landfill gas and creating energy from the gas captured.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
