Municipal solid waste (MSW) is the waste that human activities generate and originates from our community, our households, and our commercial and institutional buildings. Municipal solid wastes are generated in huge qualities, some 2 billion tons per year globally, with about one-third coming from high-income countries in Europe and North America. The World Bank forecasts that the global MSW will increase to about 3.4 billion tons by 2050. Per capita, about 0.5 kilograms of waste is generated per day in low-income countries like Africa, while the high-income countries generate more than four times that much.
Much of the municipal solid waste can be reused, and while recovering energy from waste is a good idea, older systems like incineration are often inappropriate due to the generation of toxic gases into the air. Newer systems involving chemical conversation and pyrolysis hold great promise in the waste industry.
