Abstract

Libya is one of the world’s oil-producing countries and owns the world’s eighth oil reserves. This situation has led to rapid growth in the country’s 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. These values amount to about 0.82% and 0.24% of the expected 2030 peak electricity demand of 24.1Gigawatt. The expected results for each of the scenarios can be used to design future WTE facilities in the major cities of Libya. It is recommended that further investigations be conducted to assess the scenarios based on financial, social, technical and environmental standards.

  4. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
