AcuComm’s Chief Data Analyst, Andy Crofts, gives us a round-up of this week’s chosen country focus for the Global Waste Investment Fact File.
Next up in our 2018 series of the Global Waste Investment Fact File is the Romania edition. As of February 2018, AcuComm was listing 19 waste projects in the country. These have a total value of US$1,194 million or US$63 million each.
Key points from this Fact File
- Incineration (with energy recovery) is the leading project type, accounting for US$798 million or 67% of the total. This is followed by biofuel, which accounts for US$125 million or 11% of the total.
- The total estimated capacity of these projects is 2.7 million tonnes. This is equal to 140,336 tonnes per project on average.
- This capacity is equal to 52% of Romania’s estimated annual waste generation at 5.1 million tonnes.
- Waste investments totalling US$1,013 million are expected to become operational over the next few years. This is currently expected to peak in 2020 at US$317 million.
