New York, NY, Sept. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Waste To Energy Market by Technology (Thermal and Biological) and by Application (Electricity Generation, Heat Generation, and Transport Fuels): Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2017 - 2024”. According to the report, global waste to energy market was valued at approximately USD 28.43 billion in 2017 and is expected to generate revenue of around USD 42.74 billion by the end of 2024, growing at a CAGR of around 6.00% between 2018 and 2024. 

In this growing world, non-renewable energy sources are moving towards extinction and many global concerns have arisen such as global warming and greenhouse effect. Therefore, there is a need to generate an alternate unconventional energy source which can be considered as a significant alternative for the existence of the future. Waste to energy is the process where various technologies are used for the conversion of non-recyclable waste into energy. The energy includes various forms such as electricity, heat, and also produces combustible fuels such as ethanol, methanol, and others. The various technologies processing on waste include pyrolysis, incineration, gasification, anaerobic digestion, and landfill gas recovery, among others. The waste includes both biomass and non-biomass material such as plastic waste, food waste, and paper & paperboard, among others. Waste to energy management plays a significant role in waste disposal infrastructure of any nation.
