Incineration is used to reduce the effect of harmful environmental and health problems resultant from waste dumping into unsuitable landfills. The aim of this paper is to use incineration method to produce electrical energy from waste treatment. It is a new technology that destructs the solid waste by controlled burning at high temperatures. Different applications of incineration techniques have been evaluated in order to treat waste in El-Marj city. Based on daily waste weight for every person random samples are collected from different zones in the city for about 8 years. The thermodynamic model calculations of proposed plant show that one ton of waste can produce one MW of electricity.
