Abstract – The major problem that is dealt with us in our day to day life is electricity and also the disposal of wastes onto the streets. Electricity is a basic necessity that powers our lives. It has become a part and partial of our everyday lives. And on the other side there are a lot of problems caused due to the bio-waste disposal in open places. The major problems that we encounter in our life due to the waste disposal are the spread of dangerous diseases, the greenhouse gases that are released from the uncontrolled chemical reactions that occur on the waste that is disposed. The groundwater and the surface are also polluted due to the landfill. It also gives rise due to unpleasant odour. The solution to all these problems is the conversion of all the bio waste that is generated into electricity that can serve as an answer to both our problems that we face in our day to day lives. The answer to these problems that we have thought about for this process is that first we convert the bio degradable material generated into biogas which has various chemical compositions and then the biogas is converted into electricity through the engine alternator.
