Abstract:
    RECOgen will be a portable setup that will incinerate Karachi's waste to recover power. It will work on the principle of a conventional power plant and dispose waste in a non-hazardous manner.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Karachi has become one of the dirtiest cities in the world, if only waste disposal was a profitable business we could rid ourselves of this crisis. Karachi produces 12,000 tons of daily waste that is not disposed properly and is a cause for epidemic and pollution.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The actual benefactors contain all the 20 million residents of Karachi but we will start a model prototype to engage the public sector in con conventional power generation setups that also fulfil the CSR perimeters. the actual project would help curtail the cities garbage issues.
How will the solution works
    The setup works on the same principle of a conventional power plant, where heat is given to boiler that produces high pressure steam to derive turbines. Only here the fuel will have much less energy density and calorific value around 2.5 Kcal/kg. So our boiler design will be significantly different. It will produce low pressure steam at lower temperature and less power too but we will be incinerating or garbage and reducing it to 5% of original volume and disposing it safely.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Currently we have no competitors as Pakistan has yet to move to sustainable energy development and environment protection policies. In case of comparison to conventional landfill methods our setup will ensure water safety and air quality checks while also producing power.
