Global Waste Fuel and Chemicals Technology Market Report

Dublin, December 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The “Global opportunities for the growth of technologies for recovering waste into fuel and chemicals” the report was added to offer.

This research service summarizes various innovative technologies used in the conversion of different wastes into clean fuels and chemicals.

The report focused on technologies emerging in the technological landscape of turning waste into fuel and chemicals. Technologies include: ionic gasification, nutrient recovery, solvent-based purification, CO2 hydrogenation, rapid pyrolysis, and hydrothermal liquefaction.

Although nutrient recovery is well established in terms of technological deployment, the continued efforts of stakeholders to improve these technologies and thus enable the direct conversion of the resulting nutrients into end products such as fertilizers, make it an emerging area of ​​research and development. technological development.

The research focuses on mapping various waste treatment technologies from key innovators and identifying potential end-use applications of their solutions. Key innovations in each technology are identified with the aim of evaluating the most efficient way to convert waste into useful resources and generate clean energy, while keeping emissions rates to a minimum. Corresponding stakeholders are also noted, along with details of technology readiness levels and deployment efforts.

Over the past five years, interest in various types of waste-to-fuel and chemical technologies has increased among industry players, government agencies and environmental organizations. The aim is to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and reduce the environmental and economic burden caused by landfills, by converting waste into clean resources for energy production, chemical synthesis and materials development.

The importance of technologies capable of efficiently converting various types of waste into fuels and chemicals is also driven by the awareness of end consumers of the negative impact of waste on the environment and human health. Although technologies capable of transforming various household and industrial wastes are available, they are not always environmentally friendly or even efficient.

For example, over 60% of all municipal solid waste is dumped in landfills and burned for energy recovery through incineration processes. The percentage rises to 85-90% in parts of Asia-Pacific. The dumping of waste in landfills results in the generation of methane and its incineration results in the production of greenhouse gases (GHGs), including carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2).

The continued use of these disposal and treatment methods will have a significant impact on global warming and climate change. Such concerns and the lack of effective methods of waste management, treatment and recovery ensure that governments and environmental organizations around the world are focused on creating innovative ecosystems to develop and deploy technologies for transforming waste into. fuel and chemicals.
