DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/v6tbdf/the_market_for) has announced the addition of the "The Market for MSW Management in the UK (Analyst Version)" report to their offering.
Market study on municipal waste in the UK
The British waste market is currently the most dynamic in Europe. At present, disposal contracts with a market value of more than 30 billion GBP are in the contract award process. Over the past months, contracts with a similar volume have been awarded, further ones were announced. Within the framework of these awards, up to 70 waste treatment plants are needed. Already, there are concrete plans for around 25 waste incineration plants, 25 mechanical biological treatment plants and additional refuse-derived fuel power plants. Further investments will be made in the segments of material recovery and the development of separated waste collection.
This takes place against the background of implementing European waste legislation, especially reducing the amount of waste going to landfills. The landfill tax is the most important instrument of this implementation. Since 1996, the tax has sextupled to the current amount of 48 GBP per ton of municipal waste - and it will continue to increase in the years to come, up to at least 80 GBP.
In the light of this development, ecoprog GmbH and the Centre for Resource Management and Efficiency at Cranfield University analysed the disposal market for municipal waste in the United Kingdom in detail. The evaluation includes, amongst other instruments, a written survey of more than 470 waste authorities in the United Kingdom.
Based on our market knowledge and detailed surveys, we offer figures, facts, estimations and trends in the UK disposal market, which is of interest for disposal companies, suppliers, operators, business associations, research institutes and consultants.
The analyst version of the report MSW Management in the UK includes:
- A detailed analysis of the structure, the development and investment needs in British waste management.
- Maps on disposal relationships in the segments of household waste collection, treatment and disposal, on a district and municipal level, including information on the awarding institutions as well as disposers and their market shares.
- A description of the most important waste amounts on the level of districts and urban municipalities respectively (counties and unitary authorities).
