NEW YORK, Sept. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Market Study MBT - The European Market for Mechanical Biological Treatment Plants

The market for mechanical biological treatment plants (MBT plants) keeps growing. The number of MBT plants in Europe increased by almost 60 per cent to more than 330 plants between 2005 and 2011. Within the same period, treatment capacities grew by about 70 per cent to 33 million annual tons. And this growth will continue in the next five years: we expect the number of plants to increase to about 450 and the capacity to increase to 46 million annual tons.The EU Landfill Directive especially restricts the landfilling of biodegradable waste and stipulates a pre-treatment of municipal wastes. In terms of this type of treatment, MBT technology is currently the only alternative to waste incineration, which in many cases is not favoured politically. At the same time, MBT plants benefit from the growing demand for the high-grade refuse-derived fuel they produce: in times of increasing energy prices, it has become an in demand fuel for cement mills, RDF power plants or even coal-fired power plants.

In light of this development, ecoprog GmbH analysed the European MBT market in detail. This study includes our own market knowledge as well as the expertise of public administrations, business associations and operators.

The up to date analysis of figures, facts, estimations and trends in the European market for mechanical biological treatment plants is of interest for disposal companies, suppliers, operators, business associations, research institutes and consultants.

The analyst version of the market study "The European Market for MBT Plants 2011/2012" includes:

• A detailed analysis of the pros and cons, technology and costs of mechanical biological waste treatment including all political and economic trends of the European market.

• A precise description of the present and the future market volumes by countries, up to and including 2015, based on a transparent and comprehensible methodology.

• An analysis and description of the most important operators and plant manufacturers in Europe.
