Abstract

The study assesses the environmental and economic benefits of implementing waste-to-energy technology. It utilized a laboratory research method as its study design. Different types of waste were collected and sorted out accordingly. The wastes where then pre-treated for an easy conversion process and eco-friendly. Several methods of waste method, ranging from Anaerobic Digestion, Pyrolysis, Gasification and Incineration. These methods of waste management were all compared and from the result of the analysis, it was noted that the most effective, cost-effective and sentimental friendly is the Anaerobic Digestion and Pyrolysis method. This method converts waste cooking gas, and into electricity without causing damage to the environment. Based on this finding, the study recommended that both government and the society should utilize Pyrolysis and anaerobic digestion method of waste management which is the most effective and cost-effective method of waste management system in managing their menace of waste.
