Singapore currently has four waste incineration plants. The total amount of incineration per day reaches more than 7,600 tons, and 90% of the garbage that has been burned is converted into electricity. Take the Singapore Tuas South Waste Incineration Plant as an example. Its waste incineration capacity reaches 3,000 tons per day, and its power generation accounts for 2% of the total electricity consumption in Singapore. In 2012, it achieved a revenue of S$100 million. Compared with the treatment of domestic garbage, which is mainly based on sanitary landfill disposal, the treatment method for incineration of waste generation is still at the initial stage. The waste incineration solution in Singapore is worthy of attention.

Song Zhichen, researcher of China Investment Advisor Energy Industry Co., Ltd. believes that the power generation efficiency of the waste power generation industry in Singapore is very alarming. The economic benefits are considerable. Garbage is produced, classified, collected, transported, and utilized. It is worth learning and drawing from all countries in the world, and it also gives China's waste power generation industry An important topic was raised, and the domestic waste power generation industry needs to be accelerated. On the one hand, China's waste-to-energy industry has started late, is slow, and has a weak foundation. The phenomenon of small, scattered, and chaotic enterprises is very serious, and the degree of concentration has obviously lagged behind that of developed countries. The rise of waste-to-energy projects is also based on policy preferences, capital subsidies, and environmental protection policies at the national level, not the economic interests of the industry. China's awareness of waste-to-energy projects is still at a very narrow level, and it is very difficult for general enterprises to get involved in the project.

On the other hand, China's waste wind power projects are mostly in large and medium-sized cities. First-tier cities are under greater pressure from environmental protection policies, and waste-to-energy projects are also frequently launched. However, no good economic benefits have been achieved in the development process. If the waste-to-energy project is in the city, it will be strongly opposed by the ordinary people. If it is near the suburbs, it needs a very good transport system to protect it. China's waste classification work has not been well carried out, which makes it necessary to reclassify the waste after it reaches the waste power plant, which increases the company's operating costs.

Guo Fanli, the manager of China Investment Consulting Industry Research Group, pointed out that waste-to-energy projects integrate social, environmental, and economic benefits and are an important part of the energy and power industry. There is no doubt about the development prospects and growth potential. After several years of cultivation, China's waste-to-energy power generation industry has yet to enter a stage of rapid development. After technical, equipment, and management issues are effectively resolved, the profitability of China's waste-to-energy power generation projects will become apparent. Domestic enterprises’ efforts to pay attention to waste-to-energy projects and their enthusiasm for investment are gradually increasing. During the “12th Five-Year Plan” period, more waste-to-energy projects will be launched.
