Waste management and utilization strategies are major concern s in many countries. Incineration is a common technique for treating waste, as it can reduce waste mass by 70% and volume by up to 90%, as well as providing recovery of energy from waste to generate electricity. The waste generated from municiple solid wast e incinerations ( MSWI ) usually ends up in two ways ; disposed as landfill or for reuse as secondary raw materials. In most developed countries where land is scarce and the environmental controls are strict , environmental policies tend to reduce landfill dis posals as much as possible . This article is a feasibility study of energy production from waste through incineration in Libya. The research has focused on the management of food waste. Many barriers persist in the development of the incineration plants. Th e major obstacles are the logi stic management, the classification of the waste and the Electricity Price. Becouse of the subsidization of the electricity, the break - even point is high and the net profit isnegative for the first five years.
