Innovation

The process of processing waste into energy is done by collecting municipal waste then separating it. Further, it will be processed through a wet pyrolysis reactor to create a carbonation reaction for increasing calorie value and create "bricket". This bricket will be put into a gasifier equipment then it will give energy to the power generator and creates electricity.
