North America Waste-to-Energy (WtE) Market, Forecast to 2027 - Growing Prominence of Biological WtE Technology

Dublin, Dec. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "North America Waste-To-Energy (WTE) Market 2019-2027" report has been added to's offering.

This study shows the North American waste-to-energy market to grow progressively in terms of revenue, with a CAGR of 6.69%, in the forecasting years 2019-2027.

The United States and Canada together constitute the market for waste-to-energy in North America.

Several commercial spaces in Canada, as well as, the people living in residential areas around developed regions, are generating significantly higher volumes of MSW, which is transferred to landfills, where it undergoes combustion for energy generation. Owing to the increased focus on energy conservation, Canada's market for waste-to-energy is expected to grow rapidly. Municipal, provincial and federal governments in Canada have regulated the practices for waste generation and management in the country.

The Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, regulated waste reduction and management in industrial, institutional, and household applications. The growth in the number of WtE treatment plants in the country - from 4 operating plants in 2006 to 12 facilities in 2014 - is expected to play an essential role in driving the market growth. The increase in preference for the use of non-recyclable plastics instead of landfilling, for WtE treatment, is expected to positively impact Canada's waste-to-energy market over the forecasted period.
