Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Demand to Grow Substantially in the Forecast Period

Municipal solid waste (MSW) dominates the global online market, including everyday household waste, which is generated consistently in large quantities in urban and suburban areas. The sheer volume of MSW makes it a readily available feedstock for waste-to-energy facilities. Managing MSW in landfills can lead to environmental issues such as leachate and methane emissions. Governments and communities are increasingly seeking alternative methods like waste-to-energy to reduce the environmental impact of MSW disposal.
