The United States and Canada are the countries assessed for the analysis of the North America waste-to-energy (WtE) market growth. The United States has always led from the front in matters of WtE technologies. But, the US WtE market size is small in comparison to other countries. The country has been processing the generated municipal solid waste using landfilling. At the same time, with the availability of landfill space decreasing, and the increasing environmental hazards of landfills, there has been prompt use of WtE technologies. The U.S. EPA puts forth that the waste-to-energy facilities aid in the reduction of greenhouse gases in accordance with life cycle emission analysis. According to stats, the presence of greenhouse gases is lessened to a certain extent, with every ton of municipal waste incinerated. This has further led to the launch of several favorable government initiatives. Also, the increasing amount of waste generation rates is estimated to encourage market penetration of waste to energy. The US encompasses 86 municipal waste-to-energy facilities spread across 25 states, for energy recovery.
