Abstract

The paper assessed the energy potential of the food waste content of the municipal solid waste generated by an upper middle class neigbourhood in Abuja, Nigeria. The findings from this research should encourage the government and private institutions involved in energy generation to tow the path of developed nations and continental partners like South Africa and look towards biogas technologies as means towards ameliorating the challenges faced with fossil based fuels and effective solid waste management. From the quantification exercise the Estate has the capacity to generate about 90.23GJ of energy per year from the anaerobic digestion of the food waste generated by the occupants.
