The study shows clear advantages of the thermal treatment of waste by energy generation, heat extraction and steam use as well as lower uncertainties of inflation during the aftercare period. The comparison of the two methods shows further advantages for the thermal treatment of waste by the extension of the scenario period above 20 operating years.
