Author(s): T. Ramachar, G. Chinna Rao, M. Umamahesh and D. Nagamouli

The Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) contains huge amount of combustible and decomposable components and has a great energy potential The present study includes calculation of total MSW generated per day in the city, identifying the combustible portion in the MSW generated, calculation of the moisture content, finding the calorific value of the dry combustible constituents and the total MSW separately, estimating the energy recovery potential and power generation poten tial. The estimated power generation can support substantially th e energy requirement of the city.
