Abstract
The waste incineration business is facing a rapid development in forms of
expansion of new and existing plants. To fully understand the issues facing
such a growth the historical development until today has been accounted

The future development of the availability of waste incineration plants is

Distance to other waste incineration plants is the most important factor to
take into account when planning new ones. Lack of such distance might result
in a price-cutting competition and thereby cause severe financial problems.
This report concludes that the threat of political change in governmental environment

threat. The extent of the planned expansion is due to this and to other reasons
considered dangerous, from a financial perspective. There are other
factors speaking for a more moderate expansion. (Less)
