In this paper an overview will be given of the current waste management situation in the United States, China and Japan. Every country has its own policies and government incentives where each country has its specific mix of Waste-to-Energy (WtE) technologies. This paper will also discuss briefly a few relevant Waste-toEnergy technologies as well as WtE-economics for these different regions of the world. WtE facilities are capital intensive and depend on various external factors to be viable… Expand
