Abstract: Waste has become one of the major environmental issues for every nation and is adversely affecting the lives on earth. In a developing country like India, there are many places which suffer shortage of electricity to date. Ironically they are the places which have become landfills for garbage. This paper gives a solution to the present scenario by converting food waste into electricity. This electricity is produced by the reaction between the electrodes with food waste as the medium. Different combinations and arrangements of electrodes are also taken into consideration. This is where our project plays an important role in finding an effective solution to the existing problem.

Keywords: electrodes; zinc; copper; electricity; food waste.
