Research and Markets: Research Report on China's Waste Incineration for Power Generation Industry, 2014-2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/22hhs5/research_report) has announced the addition of the "Research Report on China's Waste Incineration for Power Generation Industry, 2014-2018" report to their offering.

With the development of Chinese economy, upgrading of urbanization and changes of lifestyle, waste output keeps increasing, leading to serious environment pollution. Many cities are faced with garbage disposal problems. China has the most waste output in the world with more than 7 billion tons of untreated municipal solid waste that occupies over 3 billion square meters of land. Out of the 668 cities in China, two-thirds are surrounded by garbage. In one-fourth of the cities, garbage has to be transported to nearby rural areas, which brings about secondary pollution such as underground water contamination and stench.

The waste incineration rate in China is between 15% and 20%. It is predicted to be 35% in 2015 and the national daily disposal capacity of municipal solid waste will be more than 870 thousand tons. Cities in China currently use landfill, compost and incineration as methods of garbage disposal. The former two methods are constrained by land capacity and environment protection, making incineration the best method for garbage disposal.

China is entering a golden age of Waste Incineration for Power Generation. For instance, major cities compete to establish waste incineration power plants, and enterprises spend a large amount of money on mergers and acquisitions between Waste Incineration for Power Generation businesses. It is predicted that municipal solid waste treatment capacity in China will rise from 456.9 thousand tons/day to 871.5 thousand tons/day in 2011-2015 with the CAGR of 13.8%. The waste incineration capacity will increase from 89.6 thousand tons/day to 307.2 thousand tons/day, which grows 3.4 times with the CAGR of 28%. If unit size of newly built waste incineration plant is 1,000 tons/day, 200 more waste incineration plants need to be built from 2011 to 2015.
