The US Waste Investment Sector

In February 2022, AcuComm published ‘The US Waste Investment Sector: A Brief Overview’, which looks at Waste Generation & Treatment, Waste Industry Drivers, Waste Investment Trends and Investment Locations.

The report draws on the wealth of data generated by AcuComm from its WasteView Contract Finder database which tracks global waste project developments. The database now covers almost 10,000 facilities from project conception through to commissioning. All sectors of the waste industry are monitored, including landfill, waste-to-energy, recycling and biogas.

In 2018, the US generated an estimated 292 million tons of waste, the majority of which was sent to landfill. Around a quarter was recycled, while comparatively little was used for waste-to-energy – a sector than remains underdeveloped in the US.

TotalEnergies and Veolia reveal biomethane ambitions

TotalEnergies and Veolia have signed an agreement to produce biomethane from Veolia waste and water treatment facilities operating in more than 15 countries.

The partners will develop and co-invest in a portfolio of international projects, with the ambition to produce up to 1.5 terawatt-hours (TWh) of biomethane per year by 2025. This production of renewable gas made from organic waste will be equivalent to the average annual natural gas consumption of 500,000 residents and will avoid some 200,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. TotalEnergies will market the resulting biomethane as a renewable fuel for mobility or as a substitute for natural gas in other uses.

As part of this agreement, the partners will pool their industrial know-how in biomethane production. Veolia will provide its expertise in the production and processing of biogas from its facilities, and TotalEnergies will contribute its in-depth knowledge of the entire biomethane value chain.

TotalEnergies claims to be the segment leader in France, with close to 500 GWh of production capacity, and aims to become a major player in biomethane internationally by partnering with market leaders such as Clean Energy in the United States. The company is active across the entire biomethane value chain, from project development to marketing of biomethane and its by-products (biofertilisers, bioCO2).

UNTHA continues expansion into Japan

Austrian-headquartered industrial shredder manufacturer UNTHA is continuing its global expansion with an exclusive distributor agreement with Axia, in Japan.

The partnership reflects growing demand from the nation’s Waste to Energy market, with alternative fuel manufactured from plasticised material currently proving particularly popular.

Axia – headquartered in Kurashiki City – has taken delivery of a mobile XR unit, to use as a demonstration machine on customer sites throughout the country. Capable of handling municipal solid waste, commercial and industrial waste, and waste wood – as well as bulky materials such as tyres, mattresses, textiles and more – the XR is a high performance shredder, also available as a stationary machine.

Axia has already placed orders for six UNTHA XR shredders, which are currently being commissioned in Japan and will be maintained by Axia’s own engineers thereafter. Customers include waste specialists and alternative fuel producers for thermal power plants.

UNTHA has more than 10,000 shredders installed globally – details of recent contracts can be viewed in AcuComm’s WasteView Contract Finder: http://ow.ly/7KbK50HhaqIUNTHA
