VIEWS: 28 PAGES: 2

Each year the world generates more than 2.1 billion tons of waste, disposes of most of that waste it in landfills, and allows it to decay and release methane (a powerful greenhouse gas that drives climate change), carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, odors, groundwater quality pollutants, and a host of other air, water, and soil pollutants. Locked inside of the 2.1 billion tons of waste is approximately 24.5 quadrillion Btu of energy - enough heat to generate about 10% of the electricity consumed annually around the globe.

Each year the world generates more than 2.1 billion tons of waste, disposes of most of that waste it in
landfills, and allows it to decay and release methane (a powerful greenhouse gas that drives climate
change), carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, odors, groundwater quality pollutants, and a
host of other air, water, and soil pollutants. Locked inside of the 2.1 billion tons of waste is
approximately 24.5 quadrillion Btu of energy - enough heat to generate about 10% of the electricity
consumed annually around the globe. Meanwhile, in many developed nations, the availability of landfill
capacity has been flat or steadily decreasing due to regulatory, siting, and environmental permitting
constraints on new landfills and landfill expansions. As a result, new approaches to waste
management are rapidly being written into public and institutional policies at local to national levels.

Landfilling, which is still employed at the overwhelming majority of global waste management facilities
in developed nations, generally performs well in terms of throughput, public health, and safety. But
many current and widespread waste management practices are mediocre or even poor performers in
terms of energy efficiency and environmental performance. For instance, the conventional municipal
solid waste chain is commonly characterized by moderate to long haul distances, which generate
substantial greenhouse gas emissions, followed by long-term storage in a landfill, releasing methane
and other pollutants. In developing nations, landfills can pose major public health concerns, and can in
some cases represent a significant fire hazard due to spontaneous ignition. Many liquid waste streams,
especially in the livestock and food production industries, are only minimally treated prior to
discharge. Dairy wastes, for instance, can result in excessive nutrient loading of farm fields, while
municipal wastewater, especially in developing nations, may contain high levels of biochemical oxygen
demand, bacteria, and other harmful pollutants.

Waste to energy technologies - incineration, gasification, plasma gasification, pyrolysis, and anaerobic
digestion - provide a convenient solution to many of these waste management issues. For instance,
installation of a waste to energy conversion facility near a large urban center can reduce the number
of truck, train, or barge trips to landfills, reduce the volume of new material that is being stored in
landfills, and reduce the proportion of organic matter that is stored in a landfill, which in turn reduces
the production rates of landfill methane. Liquid waste to energy technologies can also reduce the
concentration of water quality constituents in treated effluent, by substantially reducing bacterial
loading, biochemical oxygen demand, and other constituents.

Bolstered by global concern and policy actions relating to climate change, waste to energy
technologies also support low-carbon and in some cases carbon-neutral energy production. As a
result, the global market for waste to energy technologies has evidenced substantial growth over the
last five years, increasing from $4.83 billion in 2006, to 7.08 billion in 2010 with continued market
growth through the global economic downturn. Over the coming decade, growth trends are expected
to continue, led by expansion in the US, European, Chinese, and Indian markets. By 2021, based on
continued growth in Asian markets combined with the maturation of European waste management
regulations and European and US climate mitigation strategies, the annual global market for waste to
energy technologies will exceed $27 billion, for all technologies combined.
The market expansion projected for waste to energy technologies maintains roots in the waste
industry as well as the alternative fuels/power industry. Demand for waste management solutions and
for alternative energy sources thereby coalesce to drive demand for waste to energy technologies. A
significant advantage of these dual drivers is that demand for waste to energy technologies is resilient.
For example, even in the unlikely event that demand for alternative energy slackens over the coming
decade, the demand for waste management solutions would remain, and would continue to drive the
installation of new waste to energy facilities.

Thermal and Digestion Waste-to-Energy Technologies Worldwide contains comprehensive data
