    In this project municipal solid waste will be gasified to produce output gas which is still able to burn and produce electricity . Moreover exhaust gases will be used to produce algae.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    This project will aim on producing multiple job opportunities to local communities and will also meet the country's ever increasing electricity demand. Moreover as solid waste will be burned which will ultimately decrease the pollution in our country.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   This is the need of every citezen of Pakistan. As this will solve the major problems of unemployment and pollution. Moreover byproducts like coke and tar can be used to make roads, tyres etc
How will the solution works
    This process basically involves the gasification of municipal solid waste which is different from any conventional incineration process. In this process waste will gasified in limited supply of oxygen that will result in output gas which still has the ability to burn and can then be used as fuel to produce electricity. Moreover the exhaust gases from plant will be pumped into water to produce algae, which can later be compressed to produce jet fuel and the residual will be used for animal fodder
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    At present Sweden is working on pilot projects of producing electricity from waste. It is now being said that waste is now the future gold. One big thing that we want to work on is that instead of releasing the waste gases directly into atmosphere, we will channel it to produce algae.
