Abstract:The present trend of economic development with rapid urbanization come with enormous volume of MSW and global energy demand which is a worldwide concern. The problem is more severe in many cities of developing nations like Kathmandu. Hence, the proper municipal solid waste management (MSWM) system and inventing renewable energy alternatives are the primary issues to be addressed in Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC). The present MSWM system is limited to waste collection and disposal in landfill which is critically affecting environment and public health since long period. Therefore, this research aim to investigate existing condition of MSWM and its possible impact in KMC. Further, it directed to analyse the changes needed on current MSWM system to be improved and to use the waste as resources for energy production by using available waste to energy (WtE) technologies. This particular study’s assessment and analysis is typically based on secondary data. Researcher also interacted informally with officials from KMC to validate the data and information obtained from the secondary sources. This research developed a new framework for MSWM for KMC which integrate WtE technology in the MSWM system.
