All over the world, Waste-to-Energy (WtE) facilities are becoming more and more important in increasing energy efficiency and fulfilling climate goals. In the last fifteen years, China has made enormous progress in phasing out landfilling with Its 648 WtE facilities that treat thermally more than 804.67 kt/day of waste. The Chinese WtE capacity now exceeds the EU, US, and Japan combined. Moreover, the mass production of WtE plants in China has decreased appreciably the per ton capital investment for WtE plants, thus making them more affordable for developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

The Global WtERT Council and Zhejiang University will organize the Global WtERT Congress 2023 in Hangzhou, China. The Congress seeks to generate dialogue and global engagement among all members of WtERT representing Universities and research institutions and Industry leaders in China, with the ultimate objective of enhancing global cooperation to fully release the potential of knowledge and innovation on research and technology to curb methane emissions from waste.
