The information in the survey is aggregated from AcuComm’s leading Waste Business Finder database that reports all new significant waste developments worldwide – a unique source of primary research information.
Rubbish RoundUp! provides a monthly on-going analysis and detailed statistics for the latest projects by country, completion date, facility type and feedstock. A section on companies brings focus and rankings to company activity by facility type. Finally, specific summaries are given for major projects reported.
Commenting on the results, Eric Wigart, Chairman of AcuComm comments “The Rubbish RoundUp! annual survey reflects the seriousness with which waste management is now being taken around the world. Even emerging economies are leaping the technology divide, often moving in one-step from uncontrolled landfill to advanced WtE and Biomass solutions. The trends are that waste generation will continue to grow globally and the prospects for continuing plant investment remain strong.”
