With vast heaps of non-recyclable waste accumulating each day globally, it is becoming increasingly important for the waste to energy market to intervene to convert them into more usable forms of energy like fuels, heat energy or electricity.
Waste to Energy market is evolving with time and is researching on the best possible technology to offer to the world in order to extract maximum energy form the large amount of available waste. Three important technologies and processes prevalent in the waste to energy market include:
Combustion - a process where residual waste is burnt at 850 degrees Celsius to obtain heat energy or electricity.
Pyrolysis - here waste is burnt with little or no oxygen to produce a gas which can be used to obtain different forms of energies.
Anaerobic digestion - microorganisms are used in this process which help convert organic waste to produce biogas which can help generate electricity.
With the basic technology of the waste to energy market in place, it is necessary to understand the importance of the source of the raw materials and importance waste pickers. Brazil is one of the first countries to understand the importance of waste pickers in the waste to energy market and has designed a policy that helps waste pickers to contract with companies as service providers. Brazil’s waste to energy market has flourished ever since. Very strong drivers are helping the multifold growth of the Waste to Energy market. First being the dire need to reduce pollution and take care of global warming; second being the impact of global warming on climate changes across the globe and third being the need to find non-fossil fuel sources of energy due to depleting available natural resources. These drivers are definitely very strong reasons to increase the focus of people towards this waste to energy industry and explore the available opportunities.
WTE conversion has its own drawbacks as it also generates by products in the form of greenhouse gases and other wastes which are harmful to the environment; but key players and their research teams are definitely moving towards designing more cleaner technologies with minimal waste production to obtain the energy from waste.
According to a research, in 2014, United States generated about 258 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) while UK produces over 100 million tons of wet organic waste each year. These large amounts of available raw material for the waste to energy market are an indication of the possible growth of this industry in years to come and possible amounts of energies that can generated from them.
Many existing key companies and new players of the waste to energy market are seeing huge growth opportunities in the coming years and want to take advantage of the same to boost their sales. eMarketOrg has accumulated well researched reports on waste to energy market for such decision makers of this industry to help them take necessary steps for their company growth.
