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.

As of early 2023, there were more than 2,700 WtE plants worldwide, reaching a disposal capacity of about 530 million tons per year. We estimate more than 3,000 plants with a capacity of more than 700 million tons to be operational by 2032.
