Energy consumption, waste generation and greenhouse gas emissions will continue to grow as long as population and economic growth persists. These are serious challenges to the global community. The one-stop solution is the application of Plasma Technology using waste to generate electrical power to supplement the ever growing energy demand. This will as well clean the environment of filth and greenhouse gasses. This research has shown that for the fact that plasmafication produces higher temperature than incineration and gasification, it invariably gives a higher output in power generation and less environmental effects. The results show that the plasma system must be fed at a rate that is optimum (1000 tons/day) and not below or above this rate. This also suggests that standardization of plasma systems should be based on this rate since it lacks one.
