Abstract: Every year thousands of tons of WASTE are collected, whose improper disposal has affected the existence of living things around us .These Waste are classified into biodegradable and non-biodegradable waste. Biodegradable waste is a type of waste, typically originating from plant and animal sources, which may be broken down by other living organisms. Waste that cannot be broken down by living organisms may be called non-biodegradable. This paper gives the solution for proper disposal of waste. With the help of incineration process the biodegradable and non-biodegradable wastes are burnt separately in two chambers. The heat produced is collected in the third chamber and converted into Electricity using THERMIONIC GENERATOR. Smoke is used to run the turbine and with different levels of filtering and then it is left to air. Mainly produced harmful gas ‘DIOXIN’ is neutralized with alternative reactions. As per the study there are around 50,000 tons of garden wastes are collected. With this method, that can utilize in better way so that there would be no need to take those waste, 30km away from the city. Implementing this method creates employment, solves the problem of waste disposal, and produces energy in two different ways.
