Municipal Solid Waste Landfill in Dhaka: A Sustainable Approach for Energy Generation

Kazi Akib Bin Asad, Nadim Reza Khandaker


Abstract: The failure of respective authorities to properly collect and treat municipal solid waste leads to unpleasant urban surroundings, posing serious threat to health and the environment. The capital of Bangladesh, Dhaka, is one of the most densely populated cities in the world. The predicament of poor solid waste management and energy crisis will, if not already, have a crippling effect on this me-tropolis of around 15 million residents. With a high rate of increasing urban population and consumption, Dhaka city produces approximately 3500 tons of solid waste per day, of which only 51 % is collected for disposal and inefficiently treated. On top of that, the energy sector fails to produce electricity according to its demand, resulting in routine load shedding occurrences. The concept of a sustainable urban landfill will be a model of maximum solid waste collection and management while promoting green practices as well as generating energy in the form of electricity, heat and methane.
