Is Japan’s Waste-to-energy technology the answer to Southeast Asia’s swelling plastics waste problem?

Posted on : 30 Sep, 2019

Waste to energy market is expected to be worth $40 billion by 2023 globally – with APAC being the fastest growing market (Bloomberg NEF said in an October report, citing the World Energy Council).
Japan leads the market with its waste-to-energy technology. It burns over 50 percent its plastic waste for power. The country has over 370 operational waste-to-power plants – with its most advanced facilities having the capacity to burn 1,000 tons a day of trash and generating 16.7 MW.
Japan aims to export its waste-to-energy technology to Southeast Asian countries – mainly Malaysia and Indonesia, that are struggling with swelling volumes of plastic, often entering waterways.
However, there are concerns over the environmental impact of generating electricity from plastic waste. It is said that plastic waste has a carbon content similar to oil and a bit lower than coal. Although technology may help reduce the flow of plastics into oceans, there can be serious repercussions if it is implemented on a large scale – impacting climate change emission targets.
For more on the latest waste-to-energy market, attend CMT’s Recycled Energy Asia 2020 (featuring dual tracks – 6th Biomass & BioEnergy Asia and WtE Asia 2020) on 19-21 February, 2020 in Bangkok.
