Libya is one of the worlds oil-producing countries and owns the worlds eighth oil reserves. This situation has led to rapid growth in the countrys electricity demand and municipal solid waste generation (MSW). The project proposes a brilliant plan for the use of renewable energy, including waste-to-energy facilities (WTE). This research assesses the potential contribution of WTE facilities to the peak energy demand in Libya until 2030, based on two scenarios: mass incineration and mass combustion with recycling of the whole nation and for six urban areas in the Libya. The analysis shows the possibility of producing about 197 MW (MW) based on the overall incineration scenario and about 57 MW on a mass burn basis with a recycling scenario.
