#Editors’Pick – Waste-to-energy and anaerobic digestion plants

Mexico: Construction of the country’s first commercial waste-to-energy facility
On 16th September 2016, UNTHA reported that Mexico’s first commercial waste-to-energy plant is up and running in Hermosillo, Sonora.

The facility began taking shape two years ago, when total waste management specialist, Promotora Ambiental SAB de CV (PASA), set out to enter the WtE market. As a result of the growing pressures being placed on the country’s resource infrastructure, PASA sought to produce a renewable fuel from its residual commercial and industrial waste.

Denmark: Construction of an 11 MW anaerobic digestion plant
One of the largest anaerobic digestion (AD) plants in Europe has been completed at Bevtoft in Vojens, with a biomethane output capacity equivalent to an electricity output of 11 MW.

The plant was developed by a 50-50 joint venture between E.ON and Sønderjysk Biogas (a collective of the 82 farmers supplying the substrate). The plant was officially opened on 26th September 2016.

AcuComm’s ‘Essential’ China MSW Report is out now!

The latest edition of our ‘Essential’ Business Reports series highlights the insights, trends and forecasts for the Chinese Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) sector. Since the beginning of 2013, AcuComm has monitored over 90 MSW investments across China. This report will provide details on these investments, including direct contact details of key decision-makers in a separate Excel file.

Key points from this report include:

  • China’s rapid economic growth is leading to steadily-rising waste generation. While the overall level remains low, MSW generation is beginning to approach that in Europe.
  • The focus for investment is very much WtE incineration, which many authorities consider greener than landfill, and also helps deal with burgeoning power generation requirements. The number of WtE facilities doubled between 2009 and 2014.
  • AcuComm has identified actual/potential WtE power generation of over 3,217 MW since 2013.
  • Most waste projects are located in China’s more developed eastern provinces, where population density and economic development are at their greatest.

This report is a truly unique practical sales solution, providing you with a clear, fact-based assessment of the health of the Chinese MSW sector. Our data is based on real projects and not market estimates.
