Abstract :

ABSTRACT Analysis and prospect on Waste to Energy for electricity generation conducted within Aba metropolis establishes a knowledge that about 173.3million kg of waste per annum can effectively generate about 426.07GWhr to 883.32GWhr electricity per annum dependent on type of waste used for Waste to Energy plant. The project considers different kind of wastes, and energy generated from them jointly, in order to develop a framework for sustainable waste-to-energy power plant. The aim of this paper is to take advantage of poorly disposed waste on our streets diverted to landfill and some wastes that are indiscriminately degraded by heating and turn it to techno-economic asset of waste to energy plant( to produce electricity).The set objective is to analyze the quantity of waste and its type in Aba city and turn it to” waste to energy” (electricity). The literature review examines briefly the efforts of different researchers and technologies used for waste to energy plant. The method used for this work summarily review the mathematical model for calculating gross electricity generated from waste and the research diagram for the proposed waste to energy plant. The analysis and results from the methods used for calculating energy generated from waste shows that much energy can be generated from the waste of low heating value. Besides the areas with greater population produces more waste than areas with lesser population of people.
