Evaluation of Energy Potential from Metro Manila's Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) using Waste to Energy Technologies

Metro Manila, as one of the most populous urban areas in the Philippines, faces great challenges in the management of its Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). Whereas, at the same time, it demands increase of energy in its path to economic development. However, harnessing the energy through available conversion technologies in the country is not as progressive due to limited awareness and institutional capacities. This study aims to evaluate the amount of MSW energy potential that could add to the country’s energy mix using mathematical models for Combustion and Landfill Gas technologies. This study will add significance to waste management strategies and energy production for Metro Manila.
