European Waste-to-Energy plants continue to run at full capacities

As in the years before, CEWEP supported ecoprog in conducting a survey regarding the Waste-to-Energy (WtE) industry barometer 2018 and has encouraged its members to actively participate.

Most responding plants have been seeing very high utilisation rates in the past 2 to 3 years, and they increased once again over the past year for 30% of the operators participating in the survey. These developments also have a positive impact on the employment situation. After 16% of the operators planned to increase their staff last year, this year’s survey revealed that 20% of the responding operators envisage to add new positions.
