Abstract: India generates about 60 million tons of trash everyyear.10 million tons of garbage is generated in just the metropolitan cities! Waste is a major environmental problem in all over the world. With increasing population and advancement in science and technology, natural resources are also exploited. As a developing country, one of the major crisis faced by India is waste management. India generates about60 million tons of waste every year. Increasing population and advancement in science and technology has begun to exploit the natural resources also. Nowadays an emphasis is given on waste management .Rather than managing waste, we should be looking forward for innovative methods to depose and recycle waste. Even though solid waste is being recycled in various methods, organic waste is still a question mark. When organic waste is dumped in landfill, it undergoes anaerobic decomposition and generates methane, which is a 25 times more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Our project is simply a implementation of burning organic waste using incinerator and transforming the heat produced into voltage. Conversion of heat to electricity is carried out by thermoelectric generator.
