Global challenges like climate change and the pollution problem drive society towards increased recycling and more sustainable waste management practices.

Our globally connected team of waste management and recycling professionals delivers client projects uniquely tailored to each situation, often together with local AFRY experts.

AFRY’s waste market modelling provides insights into market dynamics and future developments. As a starting point of modelling, we look at waste generation and treatment together with trends and drivers for market development. By combining this information with optimised waste sourcing, we reach a quantified understanding of the supply/demand outlook for all types of waste, focusing on relevant waste sources for each case. The supply/demand analysis data feeds into our gate fee outlooks, enabling us to provide a complete view of the market and business attractiveness.

Our key offerings:

  • Business intelligence and strategic advisory for recycling, recovery, and waste-to-energy
  • Waste market quantification and modelling (supply/demand outlooks, waste availability)
  • Gate fee outlooks
  • Legislation and policies
  • Due diligence assignments (commercial, environmental, and technical)
