Analyst Review

Waste-to-energy involves generation of power from trash as a fuel, similar to other electric power plants employing oil, coal, or natural gas as substitutes. Fuel burns and produces heat to convert water into steam, which drives the turbine to generate electricity. The process is expected to minimize a community’s landfill volume by approximately 90% and prevent one ton of carbon dioxide emission from every ton of waste transformed. Rise in power consumption, owing to rapid industrialization, and increase in focus to derive energy through renewable sources are the major factors anticipated to drive the growth of the U.S. and Canada waste-to-energy market. Moreover, increase in investments to improve electricity production and conservation by governments, rapid urbanization, and rise in consumer spending capabilities drive the U.S. & Canada waste-to-energy market growth.

Among the analyzed countries, U.S. is expected to account for the highest revenue in the waste-to-energy market throughout the forecast period (2019-2026) followed by Canada.
