  • 1

Waste-to-energy stocks are publicly traded companies whose business involves using municipal or other waste as a feedstock to create fuel or electricity.  Organic matter and plastics in a waste stream can be converted to fuel and/or electricity chemically, by means of pyrolysis, biologically such as in anaerobic digestion, or by incineration.  Alternatively, energy from waste can be captured from natural processes, such as in the collection of methane gas from landfills.

If you know of any waste-to-energy stock that is not listed here, but which should be, please let us know in the comments. Also for stocks in the list that you think should be removed.


    • I only put companies in these lists if the contribution from the relevant tech is meaningful in terms of the company’s results. Thanks for the suggestion, but I don’t think that’s the case for LM (if you disagree, can you tell me how much of LM’s revenue comes from Concord Blue?); and I don’t list non-publicly traded companies like Concord Blue.
