In July 2023, Circularity Scotland, the not-for-profit scheme administrator for the Deposit Return Scheme (DRS) in Scotland and Biffa reached an agreement under which Biffa will serve as the DRS's official logistics service provider. With the new deal, Biffa will be in charge of operating the bulking and counting facilities that will process waste for recycling as well as the vital task of collecting billions of beverage bottles and cans each year from return points around Scotland. In order to support the programme and provide more employment opportunities, Circularity Scotland is collaborating with Biffa to investigate the possibility of constructing a PET recycling facility in Scotland. This is expected to fuel the waste to energy market demand.
In March 2023, the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMCflagship) project, The Waste to Energy Recycling Plant, started operations in Kapuluppada in Visakhapatnam. A deal between the Jindal Group and the GVMC stated that the recycling facility would produce up to 15 MW of electricity per day. After collecting it from homes, the GVMC delivers 940 tonnes of solid garbage to the recycling facility. They need to provide roughly 1,200 tonnes of waste every day in order to produce 15 MW of electricity. The corporation is considering transporting 260 tonnes of rubbish from the municipalities of Nellimarla, Vizianagaram, and Srikakulam.
In February 2023, an interdisciplinary consortium led by LIPOR (Intermunicipal Waste Management of Greater Porto), P2X Europe, and Veolia began conducting studies with the goal of creating green synthetic e-fuel for the aviation industry from CO2 waste gas from the city of Maia’s municipal waste to energy plant. The waste to energy market is predicted to undergo a revolution due to its cutting-edge technology configuration and design, which will also help decarbonise the aviation industry. According to Portugal’s energy and climate policy, in addition to its 2050 carbon neutrality targets, this alternative fuel production will hasten the transition to a circular economy.
In October 2020, DHE (Dinslakener Holz-Energiezentrum) won the contract by Doosan Lentjes for the construction of lot 1 of the new wood combustion plant in Dinslaken. The order includes chute-to-stack delivery, installation, and commissioning of two incineration lines. The start-up is anticipated for the middle of 2024. When the new facility is fully operational, it will thermally treat around 200,000 metric tonnes of waste wood (class l-lll) annually.
Waste to energy is the process of transforming waste using thermochemical and biochemical processes to produce energy in the form of heat or electricity. It is also known as EFW (energy-from-waste). WTE technologies offer an energy security option in addition to a better method of waste disposal.

The various processes in the market are incineration, gasification, biological, and pyrolysis, among others. The different sources of WTE are MSW (Municipal Solid Waste), agriculture waste, and medical waste, among others. Based on technology, the waste to energy market is divided into fluidised bed and rotary kiln, among others. The major applications of the market are heating, power generation, combined heat and power, and transport. The regional markets for waste to energy (WTE) can be divided into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.
The comprehensive EMR report offers a detailed analysis of the market based on a SWOT analysis and Porter's five forces model. The following top players in the global waste to energy (WTE) market are thoroughly analysed in the study, along with their competitive landscape and recent developments such as mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans.
According to the waste to energy market research, a fluidised bed is a two-phase mixture of fluid and particle solid material that is frequently used in modern technologies to efficiently carry out a variety of physical and chemical processes. Fluidised beds have been used in a variety of technical processes, including as the cracking and reforming of hydrocarbons (oil), carbonisation and gasification of coal, roasting of ore, waste combustion, and the combustion of solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels.
The rotary kiln is often used in the solid/liquid waste incineration process because of its versatility in processing solid, liquid, and containerised wastes. Solids are heated to a predetermined temperature in a controlled processing environment using rotary kilns to induce a chemical or physical reaction.
Due to the favourable regulatory environment for the development of sustainable urban infrastructure, Europe is predicted to be one of the leading regions in the waste to energy market. Direct subsidies, landfill fees and taxes, and other taxes, such as the carbon tax, have all been enacted by governments around the region, which will spur the market expansion. Additionally, one of the key drivers fuelling the expansion of the regional industry has been the funding opportunities for energy efficiency and conservation projects in the European Union. The country has been working to create a credible and financially feasible alternative to conventional fossil fuels due to the possible threat to energy security, fluctuating oil prices, and mounting social pressure to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
The waste to energy market in Asia Pacific is anticipated to expand significantly over the coming years, with China and Japan having the highest development potential. Increased government investment in urban solid waste management and rising public awareness of waste-to-energy facilities in several nations, including India, Singapore, Indonesia, and Thailand, are expected to propel regional market expansion.
India is rapidly urbanising and developing, which is leading to an increase in municipal solid waste and a need for better waste management strategies. As a result of numerous public health issues are linked to soil and water pollution, the government has launched a number of measures for managing urban and industrial waste. The country has 186 WTE projects in place to produce power from biogas and bioCNG. Five of the 186 projects generate 66.5 MW of electricity from municipal solid waste, and the remaining 181 initiatives are based on industrial, urban, and agricultural waste. This is anticipated to accelerate the waste to energy market development.
