Solid Waste Equipment Market in Taiwan
Taiwan’s rapid industrial growth and urbanization, concentrated on an island of only 36,000 km2, has resulted in an avalanche of solid waste. The critical need to deal with both municipal and industrial solid waste disposal, as well as the implementation of new recycling statutes effective March 1, 1998, offer a steady market in Taiwan for solid waste management equipment suppliers over the next two years.

The most urgent need in Taiwan’s solid waste equipment sector is to bring more of the incinerator projects, designed to handle 75% of the island’s municipal solid waste, into operation. The cost of each of the 21 major incinerator turnkey projects underway is expected to run between $70 million and $200 million to install. Bidding is now underway for the first four of eighteen BOO / BOT incinerator plants, for which Japanese, US, European and Taiwanese firms are placing bids. In addition, an emergency plan to provide fifteen towns with subsidies of $56 million, for the construction of interim small-scale incinerators was introduced in October, 1997.

Out of an estimated 17 million tons of industrial waste generated each year, less than 50% is properly treated and disposed of. Currently, the government is encouraging more private sector involvement in the transport and treatment of wastes, 70% of which is industrial waste. The volume of waste handled by 600 firms in 1997, (1 million tons,) is expected to double this year, indicating an increase in demand for hauling, compacting, and disposal equipment.

The implementation of a new recycling law, which went into effect March 1, 1998, will mandate the recycling of discarded major appliances and computers inside Taiwan. Initial estimates of the annual cost for the new recycling plan amount to USD 12.5M, indicating continued growth for the recycling sector, following investments of $20 million on recycling equipment by the private sector in 1997.

Overall, the market for pollution control equipment in Taiwan remains strong. The resilience of the local economy amidst the financial crisis, the “Asian flu,” that swept the region during the first half of 1997 has been remarkable, but a downturn in exports during the first quarter of 1998 may force additional depreciation of the NT dollar, which could delay some investments in equipment imports. However, serious environmental problems, particularly in solid waste management, are being tackled with determination and budget commitments by government authorities, which spent $1.1 Billion in 1997 on solid waste transport and disposal. Private industry, particularly small and medium sized companies which have virtually no treatment facilities, will continue to install pollution control equipment under pressure from central, municipal and local government authorities. Total purchases of solid waste pollution control equipment is estimated to reach $87.4 million in 1998, up 10% over 1995.


A) Market Assessment
Small and densely populated, Taiwan has very high rates of environmental loading. Taiwan’s total population was over 21.7 million by the end of 1997, resulting in a population density of 602 persons per square kilometer. The population is also highly concentrated in urban areas, with 39% living in the greater metropolitan areas of Taipei and Kaohsiung (including Taipei & Kaohsiung Counties), while the cities of Taoyuan, Taichung, Changhua, and Tainan account for another 24%. The density of automobiles reached 142 per km2 last year, (seven times higher than the USA,) while at the same time the streets of Taiwan are jammed with motor-scooters at a density of 268 per km2. Despite the crowded and polluted conditions of the cities, the people of Taiwan have maintained the breakneck pace of productivity and consumer spending over the last several years, domestic consumption remained high, at 74% of GNP, while the national GDP was $272.3 billion for 1997.

Taiwan’s economy has remained remarkably stable during the financial crisis that swept Southeast Asia and shook other major economies of East Asia during the second half of last year. The NT lost 15% of it’s value during that period, considerably less than some other currencies in the region, which is perhaps due to the strong trade surpluses that Taiwan has had for more than fifteen years, as well as Taiwan’s huge foreign exchange reserves ($83 billion at the end of 1997). A drop in exports during the first quarter in 1998, might cause delays in purchasing of pollution control equipment this year, but overall growth is expected to remain unchanged for 1998, and the Executive Yuan announced in March that they expect to reach a 6% growth rate, only slightly down from the 6.7% growth forecast earlier. Confidence in the Taiwan stock market remains high, with foreign investments reaching more than $1.2 billion during February, 1998, led by computer and electronics firms, which are expected to increase production this year. Many have attributed the robust performance of the economy to both versatile performance of small and medium sized industries, as well as the quick demise of ailing firms.

In 1995, expenditures on the installation of pollution control equipment in Taiwan totaled $700.3 million, a drop of 1.8% from the previous year. This was the third consecutive year that the market shrank, since reaching a spending peak in 1992. The public sector accounted for 32% of spending, while the private sector accounted for 68%. The major private investors were in the following industrial sectors: basic metals (21%), oil & petroleum products (17%), electronics (14%), and chemicals (13%). In 1995, waste water equipment accounted for 42% of total expenditures, waste gas equipment accounted for 43%, and solid waste equipment installation accounted for USD 72.8M, or 10% of the total.

In 1997, public sector spending on pollution control equipment increased due to the ongoing construction of thirteen municipal incinerators. In the solid waste sector, purchases of pollution control equipment reached $80.3 million, up 10% over 1995. Of the solid waste expenditures, $50.8 million was spent on imports on incinerators and garbage trucks.

B) Industrial Waste
The concentration of industry in Taiwan is intense. Of 99,800 registered factories in Taiwan in Dec. 1997, nearly 30% were located in Taipei City and Taipei County. Other cities with high numbers of factories are: Taichung (15%), Taoyuan (10%), Changhua (9%), and Tainan (7%). Kaohsiung (combined with Kaohsiung County) has only 7% of the registered factories, but also has many of the largest heavy industries, petrochemical refineries, and Taiwan’s largest port, which handles over 80 million tons of cargo annually. Taiwan’s manufacturing sector output in 1995 was $229 billion, up 10% over the previous year. Strong performers were in chemical materials production, which reached $24 billion in 1995 (up 35% over 1994); and computer electronics, which reached $50 billion in 1995 (up 35% over 1994).

With industrial expansion and rising domestic consumption, the production of solid waste has continued unabated. Approximately 17 million tons of industrial waste are produced in Taiwan each year, some 40% of which are treated and disposed of properly. The IDB launched a five year program beginning in 1993 to increase the amount of industrial waste being treated from 30% to 50%. The program includes waste minimization, on-site treatment, joint treatment facilities, licensing of private waste treatment firms, promoting industrial park treatment plants, and co-disposal at municipal incinerators.

According to a 1997 TEPA survey on industrial waste, 500 large and medium sized firms properly disposed of 5 million tons of waste produced in 1996, up from 4.5M tons in 1995. Last year, 74% of this waste was recycled for recovery of raw materials, 20% was collected and disposed of by public and private haulers, 4% was treated within the factory, and 2% was handled at joint treatment facilities. However, the same report indicates that 95% of small and medium-sized industries in Taiwan do not have the capability in terms of waste volume, financial resources, and manpower to install waste treatment systems in their own factories.

In May 1996, TEPA authorities issued operating permits to 597 private waste transport companies, as well as 23 permits to private waste treatment firms. The IDB estimates that private sector firms already handled 1 million tons of waste last year, of which 70% was industrial waste. This year, the waste-handling capacity of private firms in this sub-sector is expected to double to over 2 million tons. Private contractors are also expected to participate in the development of treatment plants at industrial parks, such as the waste treatment centers contracted to Ret-Ser Engineering at the Ta-fa and Chang-pin Industrial Parks.

C) Landfills and Incinerators
Taiwan produces more than 24,000 tons per day of municipal solid waste. Due to both limitations of space and groundwater contamination problems, Taiwan has committed itself to building incinerators instead of landfills. During the last several years, the opening of five incinerator facilities has begun to reduce the amount of waste being disposed of in the 266 sanitary landfill facilities. Adding incineration capacity is urgently needed because more than 70% of the existing landfills have reached their maximum capacity or will be saturated within two years.

(Source: Yearbook of Environmental Protection Statistics, Taiwan Area, ROC, 1996-1997)

Taiwan plans to have 21 large scale municipal solid waste incinerators, with a total capacity of 21,900 metric tons per day, in operation by the year 2001. The cost of building each one of these facilities is expected to be between $60 million to $178 million. An estimated $550 million per year is currently being spent on the municipal large-scale incinerator projects, and roughly 30% of this cost is spent on equipment purchases, or $165 million. Imports of incinerators for 1997 were $35.6 million. Of the 21 projects, five are now in operation, thirteen are currently under construction, and three are in the final bidding process (see Chart One for details). All of the 21 turnkey projects were awarded to major industrial contractors in Taiwan, in collaboration with Japanese and German equipment suppliers and engineering firms.

The finished incinerators, (four located in the Taipei area and one in Taichung,) were processing a total of 4,138 metric tons / day in May 1997, and producing a total of 938 tons / day of ash. The disposal of ash is regarded as a high priority by TEPA, and business opportunities for companies with technology and processes for disposing of both fly ash and bottom ash are expected to grow during the next two years. Nine incinerator projects (Neihu, Mucha, Peitou, Taichung, Chiayi, Tainan, Hsintien, Shulin, and Bali), have no facilities for treatment of ash waste. The remaining twelve incinerators are planned to include treatment facilities. The TEPA estimates that the Taipei municipal, Taiwan central, and Taiwan provincial environmental authorities are expected to spend $640,000 per year on disposal of fly ash and bottom ash from every 900 ton/day plant. The cost breakdown is estimated to include: $152,000/yr on transport of bottom ash, $424,000/yr on solidification of fly ash, and $64,000/yr on transport of solidified fly ash. Within seven years, the cost of treatment and delivery of ash waste from the 21 turnkey incinerators is expected to cost $15 million per year.

Because Taiwan’s incinerators utilize mass-burning techniques (of unseparated combustible and non-combustible waste), fly ash contains high concentrations of heavy metals, and 1 ton of bottom ash is produced for every 4 tons of trash incinerated. Since landfills are already operating at or near capacity, and because the majority are poorly lined, disposal of ash is expected to aggravate already serious problems of leachate contamination of groundwater. Therefore, TEPA is seeking treatment alternatives for ash waste. Crystallization of ash, re-use for building materials or bricks, and other methods which can help reduce the volume of ash disposed in landfills are among ideas under consideration.

In addition to the 21 turnkey projects, TEPA plans to open 18 BOO/BOT incinerator projects, with a total capacity of 8,400 metric tons per day. TEPA is planning to spend $27 billion on these projects over the next 20 years, the majority of the cost being garbage handling fees. Phase one calls for the development of eight projects with a combined capacity of 3,900 tons/ day (see Chart Two for details.) Developers are to participate in two stages of bidding: a qualification and technical bid, and a price bid. The county and city governments have been awarding technical consulting contracts, with two out of eight have been won by US companies. In meetings and public hearings held in September and October of 1997, US companies and local engineering firms expressed concerns about the hidden threat of corruption in the development of these projects, but they also recognized the TEPA’s important change to garbage handling fee regulations that will help to address risks in foreign exchange losses, garbage heating value change, loan interest fluctuations, and variations in the consumer price index.

Despite the urgent need to open additional incinerators, several projects have run into severe problems due to local protests. Local “not in my backyard” (NIMBY) campaigns have cause delays and work stoppages and reveal the political costs and difficulties of localizing future disposal sites.

D) Recycling
In the struggle to reduce the volume of the solid waste stream, TEPA has set a target for a minimum of 40% of all solid waste to be recycled by the year 2000. In 1995, the recycling rate for paper was 55%, while plastics and metals were both 27%. However, the lack of an industrial recycling infrastructure, spotty enforcement, and non-separation of municipal solid wastes continue to hinder progress. Nonetheless, the enactment of a new recycling law, which sets a 60% recycling rate target for home appliances and computers is expected to have a larger immediate impact in the recycling sub-sector, and is expected to create an industrial recycling program that will cost $12.5 million per year to operate.

The cost of recycling will be passed on to consumers in the form of a surcharge for each unit purchased. At the end of February this year, the fees were set as follows: refrigerators, NT$220; air-conditioners, NT$170; washing machines, NT$154; televisions, NT$150; desk-top computers, NT$300; and notebook computers, NT$200. Separate funds have been established for recycling various products, such as lubricant oil, aluminum, and home electronics. The manufacturers will pay the recycling fees to these funds, which are responsible for the financial management of recycling centers, some of which have already been established. Two facilities for recycling lubricant oil, (in Kaohsiung and Taichung) have been established, and other facilities exist for recycling paper, glass, and metals. A joint recycling facility for home electronics is planned for the Chang-pin Industrial Park, but is not expected to be in operation until the second half of this year, at the earliest. Appropriate technology & processes for recycling the electronics items mentioned above will be in demand during the coming two years.

* This chart is based on the imports of garbage trucks and incinerators and does not attempt to extrapolate various incidental imports of equipment related to the incinerator projects.

The 1997 Imports figure is based on $50.8 million (incinerators and garbage trucks, public sector) plus $15.1 million (IDB 1997 offsets for investment in solid waste control equipment, private sector). The Local Pro-duction figure is based on the results of an AIT survey of pollution control equipment manufacturers conducted March 1998. The Exports figure is taken from Monthly Statistics of Exports of the Republic of China, Dec 1997. Imports from the U.S. are taken from Monthly Statistics of Imports of the Republic of China, Jan 1998.

The estimated amount of equipment purchased annually for municipal incinerator projects is $165 million, of which only $35.6 million was spent on incinerator imports. If all of the equipment purchases for these projects were considered as “solid waste equipment,” the total market size would be much larger, however, it would be impossible to determine the type or country of origin of the remaining $129.4 million worth of equipment. In addition, recycling equipment expenditures, (amounting to $20 million in 1997 for the private sector alone), have not been included, although recycling will have an increasingly important impact on the management of solid waste in Taiwan in the near future.

Incinerator projects remain the largest budget item for purchases of solid waste equipment, and should create demand for technology & processes for treatment of fly ash and bottom ash. Solidification, crystallization, and re-use are all being considered for treatment of fly ash. Bottom ash will become a serious problem to contend with within three years as more of the incinerators go into operation and may force the various plant operators and the TEPA to push for pre-separation of trash, in order to reduce both the volume of bottom ash and its toxicity.

According to China Technical Consultants, there will be demand in Taiwan for equipment for the following applications:
-screening and separation
-distillation shredding
-thermal cracking
-boiler control & metering
-solidification equipment & agents
-leachate isolation lining

The establishment of recycling centers in the second half of 1998, will create new opportunities for specialized equipment for recycling of refrigerators, televisions, washing machines, air conditioners and computers. These will include:

Filtering machinery for gases
Electric air filters and purifiers
Gas recoverers
Wastewater material recovery systems


According to statistics published by the IDB, there were 730 registered environmental firms in 1997, with a total workforce of 197,000. The majority of these firms are engineering and consulting firms, some 100 firms manufacture equipment, 66 are licensed evaluation and monitoring specialists, and some 50 firms are recycling companies. Annual production value of these firms, (including design, production and installation of pollution prevention technology; waste minimization, resource recovery, re-use, and recycling; monitoring and testing; green products development; energy saving products development; and other related consulting, service, and engineering) was estimated at $2.6 billion in 1996.

Local production of pollution prevention equipment in Taiwan is roughly $140 million. Approximately $15 million of incinerators are produced annually in Taiwan ($0.9 million were exported in 1997), primarily for small scale industrial use in the range of 1-10 tons/day capacity. In the categories of pollution prevention equipment and parts, and incinerators, Taiwan firms exported $29.9 million in 1997, a decrease of 0.5% from the previous year, and this downward trend is likely to continue during the next two years due to a drop-off in export demand to other Asian countries .

Major producers of equipment in Taiwan include Diamond Technical and Trading, Hotteen Environmental Engineering, Faithful Standard Inc., Cheng Chen Machinery Co., and Dai-East Incinerators. In the technical consulting market, Sinotech, Super Max Engineering, and China Engineering (CECI) continue to win many major contracts for incinerator projects. Taiwan technical consultants work with foreign partners on a case by case basis, which has been an effective method for foreign partners to enter Taiwan’s environmental market, however, participation has been limited to a small number of major firms.


Imports of pollution prevention equipment and parts, incinerators, and garbage trucks amounted to $226.4 million in 1997, up 8.9% over the previous year. This is an increase in growth from 1996, which showed a 4.7% rise over 1995. However, during the same three year period, US market in these categories plummeted from 50% to 27%. Japan showed gains in total sales, although their market share was eroded by the sharp rise in German imports. The share of equipment from Japan is likely to rise during the next two years, partially due to the import of incinerator equipment for the contracts awarded to Takuma, Hitachi, and Mitsubishi. Likewise, German imports, with an internationally acclaimed record of excellence in filtration equipment, are expected to continue to maintain at least 20% of the total market for the next two years.

German firms successful in winning technical consulting contracts include Volund; Fichtner, appointed consulting engineer for the Shulin and Hsintien incinerators; and L & C Steinmuller, awarded joint contracts with Taying Industrial for the incinerators in Ilan and Keelung.

The U.S. market share, having dropped for three consecutive years, is expected to recover slightly, up to 26-27% of the total import market, during the next two years. Private waste hauling firms, licensed in 1996, are forecast to double their hauling capacity, which will create a favorable market for orders of new garbage trucks and compactors, a strong point for U.S. suppliers in the past. U.S. firms may be able to make strong gains in the re-use of fly ash and bottom ash markets, though gains in market share for new incinerator imports are likely to be made by emerging competition from European suppliers, especially Denmark, France, and Italy.

Major U.S. suppliers in the solid waste equipment market in Taiwan are Ref-Suel, Waste Management Inc., Foster Wheeler, Ogden Martin, Enseco, and Westinghouse. Except for Camp Dresser & McKee, which won the consulting bid for the 300 ton/day incinerator project in Yunlin, U.S. consulting firms have not succeeded in cracking into the large technical consulting market it Taiwan. Many attribute this to the advantage of long-standing relationships between Taiwanese and Japanese firms, as well as corruption in the bidding process. However, the rapid increase in German market share has largely been at the expense of U.S. imports losing ground since 1995, reflecting the need for advanced technologies available from suppliers outside of Japan.


Most pollution prevention equipment imports are purchased on a contract by contract basis, primarily through agents and distributors. Local end-users are more likely to rely on these import agents to source their needs, preferably for a full-service supplier that will import, assemble, install, and service equipment to address a particular environmental problem.

Local equipment manufacturers have developed many of their products in cooperative ventures with foreign firms, especially Japanese firms, which have extensive experience in building and operating incinerators in thousands of municipalities throughout Japan. Nonetheless, local manufacturers also remain interested in finding new equipment sources and establishing new cooperative ventures for applications in Taiwan’s solid waste management market and in Mainland China. Industrial waste treatment equipment, biological waste treatment processes, materials recovery processes, and technology to capture and re-use fly ash are seen as areas of potential growth.


Taiwan’s tariff system is on a C.I.F. basis. Pollution control equipment imports are exempt from duties, provided a Free Tax Certificate has been obtained from the Industrial Development Bureau in advance. All imported goods face a 0.5% harbor tax, as well as a 5% value-added tax. No known non-tariff barriers are imposed on U.S. imports.


Public organizations purchase pollution control equipment by means of open tender bidding. These projects are contracted through the TEPA or the IDB. Project specifications are usually contracted out to private sector engineering firms or to consulting agencies in one of the Taiwan’s university environmental engineering departments. Japanese companies have extended technical assistance to the technical consultants in Taiwan as an effective means of establishing their presence in Taiwan, and U.S. firms should consider using the same strategy. U.S. companies also compete for these technical consulting contracts, including such firms as Camp Dresser & McKee, CH2M Hill, and WMX.

U.S. suppliers may have advantages in competition in terms of production costs and quality, but may face unfair practices in the bidding process. The majority of pollution control equipment purchases are specified by the technical consulting engineers, and in some cases, this may include specific brand names or manufacturers in the contract, which makes a strong relationship with sales agents / distributors and consulting engineers all the more important.

Establishing a partnership or joint venture with one of Taiwan’s many well known agents or engineering firms is the best means to gaining access to the Taiwan market. Information about these firms can be obtained from the Taiwan Environmental Engineering Association, Taiwan Environmental Equipment Manufacturer’s Association, and AIT Commercial Section.

The decision by the Bayer Co. (Germany) to cancel its planned multi-million dollar factory in Taichung in March 1998 has raised some doubts about the current investment climate in Taiwan. The proposed factory, which was to produce the chemical TDI for use in pesticides, met with fierce opposition from local protestors and Taichung legislators, despite reassurances from Bayer that pollution prevention measures would be taken to meet and exceed existing environ-mental regulations in Taiwan. Bayer’s withdrawal, however, should not be seen as entirely negative, as it is surely a strong indication of public concern for environmental issues.


Purchases of pollution control equipment find sources of capital from domestic and foreign commercial banks, and credits extended by the suppliers. Some air pollution equipment is eligible for financial assistance from the IDB, and most types of pollution control equipment are eligible for exemption from import tax. Any equipment purchase negotiation should fully discuss terms of financing and payment.
