Approximately half the energy produced in Union European’s municipal waste incinération plants is obtained from fermentescible waste (ie biomass waste). To date, incinération is still the main energy conversion channel for renewable municipal waste, for in 2009, biomass energy output stood at 7.7 million toe, which is a 3.3% increase on 2008. Furthermore, this amount could be doubled, assuming a constant level of waste, by investing in modernisation and combustion efficiency improvements.
