Abstract:

This paper presents the strategy of improving energy generation in Nigeria by using combustible waste as alternative fuel in power plant. Household and commercial waste is being considered as fuel for electrical power generation .data obtained include volume of waste produce in sampled building  of urban, sub-urban and rural communities from field source  through direct collection of total waste produce per building in each community considered  .sample of waste was measured and classified by percentage to determine the percentage combustible wood related  waste usable as fuel in the power plant .estimated combustible waste in Edo state is 360,224 Kg per day while in Ondo state 376,228.3 Kg per day  this can independently run a 1 Mw-h waste power plant on daily basis. The process flow diagram and the energy conversion strategy to be deployed is discuss.
