Press release
Waste-to-energy is one of the most effective and robust alternative sources of energy, which helps in the reduction of CO2 emissions and thus replace the use of fossil fuels. Using waste as a combustion substance is expected to reduce landfill volumes by more than 90%. For every ton of waste burned, one ton of CO2 emission is reduced, which further helps in eliminating methane, which could be leaked with landfill disposal. This factor is anticipated to increase the demand for U.S. & Canadian waste-to-energy markets.

The U.S. and Canada waste-to-energy market is growing due to a surge in demand for renewable sources of energy in these regions, as well as an increase in investment by governments to enhance energy production. Further, regulations implemented to reduce carbon content are further anticipated to boost the overall growth of the market. However, high costs associated with plant installation and infrastructure of expensive components are expected to hamper the overall market growth.

On the basis of type of technology, the thermal type of waste-to-energy market accounted for the highest U.S. & Canada waste-to-energy market share in the year 2018 and is projected to maintain the same during the forecast period. This is owing to an increase in demand for thermal gasification in energy generation from waste materials due to the rise in demand for clean energy across the countries.

Furthermore, U.S. & Canada waste-to-energy market trends such as rapid urbanization and an upsurge in the production of various renewable energy sources including biomass and other are expected to boost the growth of the market. The incineration segment was valued at $859.4 million in 2018 and is projected to reach $1,380.6 million by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2019 to 2026. The incineration segment accounted for around half of the thermal technology segment in 2018, owing to the perennial modifications in the market and efficient techniques & processes, which are in high demand across the globe. Thus, an increase in the requirement for high-tech waste-to-energy conversion methods fuels the U.S. and Canada's waste-to-energy market growth.
