Electricity generation from municipal solid waste in some selected cities of Nigeria: An assessment of feasibility, potential and technologies.
Renewable and Sustainable Energy Review, vol. 80.
pp. 149-162.

In this paper, the potential of municipal solid waste (MSW) for electricity production in twelve selected metropolises in Nigeria using Landfill Gas to Energy (LFGTE), Incineration (INC) and Anaerobic Digestion (AD) technologies is presented with the aim of evaluating the energy potential for each location as well as determining the economic viability of possible waste to energy project. Some of the key results revealed that Port Harcourt (M6), Abuja (M7), Benin (M5) and Ilorin (M8) are potentially feasible and economically viable for waste-to-energy project. However, Abakaliki (M4), Bauchi (M9) and Jalingo (M10) are less viable for such a project. INC and LFGTE technologies provide the best technological option for waste-to-energy project in term of quantity of electricity that can be generated in the cities located in the Northern part of Nigeria based on the kind of wastes that are being generated at the locations while AD present itself as the technology of choice in the cities located in the Southern region.
