Abstract

Climate change and the emerging need to reduce carbondioxide (CO2) and other emissions,
call for increased environmental concern on national and global level. Renewable energy has
been identified as a would-be significant part of the solution that will prevail on merit and form
an important economic component of future infrastructure [1].
Large-scale central power as present today will not be the major thrust of power
development indefinitely. Rather, greater use of non-traditional fuels will result in a gradual shift
away from fossil fuels to energy sources obtained from factories and homes. Waste heat from
industrial processes together with gases from waste biological sources represents significant
energy resources that are today frequently neglected. In addition to waste heat, households throw
away huge amounts of garbage which can be recovered into biomass materials to fuel the
engine/equipment to make power. This paper intends to present an overview of waste-to-energy
technologies that could transform waste into renewable energy sources in an economic manner
and also provide a cleaner environment.
