The latest edition of the AcuComm Waste Business Monitor is out now

WBM

The latest edition of the AcuComm Waste Business Monitor is out now. Our report is essential for waste equipment manufacturers, operators and service companies.

The publication provides an ongoing and comprehensive analysis of current projects in the global waste industry, enabling you to establish the level of activity in the different sectors of the waste industry around the world.

In this month’s report you will find:

  • The latest waste plant developments in March 2015
  • Trends in waste plant development over the last 12 months
  • Listings with links to further information

The special company focus report this month is on Saxlund International, one of the more active European biomass equipment companies. Additionally, this month’s tech focus report is on Energy from Wood-fed Biomass.

Some key points from this issue of the AcuComm Waste Business Monitor include:

  • Wood-based feedstocks account for around one fifth of all new investment in waste technologies, reflecting a move away from traditional power generation in many countries
  • Planned project capacity was led by four countries in March 2015: the USA, Japan, the UK and Saudi Arabia
  • Significant waste investments occur not only in developed markets, but across the developing world
  • Dealing with MSW in a modern way is increasingly important around the world, leading to significant additional capacity being added in this area
  • The USA, Europe and Asia are all major investors in new waste technologies, each tailored to meet their specific needs

Gasification-icon3The average value of a MSW Recycling project is US$62 million, although wide variations are encountered due to project size and waste mix.

MSW Recycling projects – once they obtain the relevant permissions – are typically operational in around one year. On-going investment is of course needed once a project is operational.

TOMRA’s waste sorting revenues – which comprise sensing and sorting equipment for a range of waste types – have risen rapidly in recent years from 18% of the total in 2010 to 41% in 2014.

Gasification-icon3Aside from MSW, organic materials such as wood and other plant-based biomass are key areas of investment.

Dealing with MSW in a modern way is increasingly important around the world, leading to significant additional capacity being added in this area.

The USA, Europe and Asia are all major investors in new waste technologies, each tailored to meet their specific needs.

Gasification-icon3Wood-based materials – whether waste products or grown specially – are increasingly being used as a fuel for providing domestic power for heat and light.

Significant waste investments occur not only in developed markets, but across the developing world.

Once work starts, the average project takes around 18 months to complete. Most, however have on-going operational requirements for much longer.

The need to handle ever increasing volumes of household waste and to cost-effectively produce electricity finds its perfect solution in Waste-to Energy (WtE) plants. Testimony to the benefits of this technology is reflected in over 265 MSW WtE plant developments in 58 countries reported by AcuComm to October 2014. These plants have a planned/projected generating capacity in excess of 5,000 MW and bring more than 60 million tonnes per year to the MSW sector.
