Visiongain’s updated report the Global Landfill Gas to Energy Market 2018-2028: Regional Forecasts for CAPEX, OPEX and Project Type by End Use Application indicates that the global landfill gas to energy market will see capex of $3.525bn in 2018, including both capital and operational expenditure on electricity generating and direct-use landfill gas projects.

Landfill gas to energy (LFGE) facilities have continued to receive high levels of investment, proving to be a cost-effective way to utilise landfill gas for generating energy, as well as achieving significant reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This report details the levels of investment in the global market, subdivided by regions, capital and operational expenditure and project type by end use application. Through extensive research and discussions with experts in the industry, visiongain has identified a series of market trends that will impact the LFGE market over the coming decade.

The lead analyst of the report commented that: “As countries look to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and protect local environments, it has been necessary to develop comprehensive waste management programmes. Utilising gas generated at landfill sites has been a necessary component of these programmes, simultaneously reducing methane emissions and providing an alternative energy supply for the local population.

Tightening regulation in developed countries has instigated a decline in landfill use, leading to the replacement of LFGE investment with expenditure on organic digester plants to produce a cleaner biogas. Nevertheless, this is a slow process and large markets still exist in both the UK and the USA for landfill gas to energy. Visiongain predicts that developing countries will experience rapid growth over the next decade as they start to develop their own waste management programmes that incorporate LFGE facilities. Financial and technical expertise from developed markets have helped facilitate this process through strategies such as the Global Methane Initiative and the UNFCCC’s Clean Development Mechanism.”

The report provides CAPEX and OPEX forecasts for five regional markets (North America, Central and South America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World) and the three leading national markets (US, UK and Canada) for 2018-2028, as well as breaking up CAPEX into direct use and electricity generation submarkets for each regional and national market. The report also provides detailed company breakdowns for existing projects in the US and UK markets, including profiles of the ten leading global LFGE companies. The transcripts of interviews with Comcor Environmental Limited, Rogue Disposal Services Ltd. and the Landfill Methane Outreach Programme (LMOP) provide expert insight alongside visiongain’s forecasts and analysis.

The Global Landfill Gas to Energy Market 2018-2028 report will be of value to anyone who wants to better understand the market and its dynamics. It will be useful for businesses already involved in the landfill gas to energy market, or for those wishing to enter this sector in the future.
