Abstract

Technologies for recovering energy from municipal solid waste (MSW) are becoming increasingly established in many countries. This trend derives from a combination of factors which include the potential for economic and environmental benefits and the increasingly held belief that MSW should be viewed more as a resource and less as simply a waste requiring disposal. The objective of this research is to estimate the energy content of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated in Ujjain city of M.P, India, based on its physical composition. .Ujjain city provide 150 tons/ day MSW generated, Average net calorific value 1103.5kcal/kg, the net power generation potential is 2.16 kW Ujjain. For energy recovery thermo-chemical and bio-chemical conversion process is used.
