The renewable energy resources from organic solid waste have increased day by day in Dhaka city as well as the whole country with the increasing of populations. This research evaluates and estimates the biogas productions from the municipal solid waste (MSW) through anaerobic digestion processes. Both the Biogas productions and power generation from MSW can play and important roles in this study. By using of the biogas has estimated the potentiality to generate electricity as 207.288, 873.034 and 2878.134 MW/day, in years 2020, 2025 and 2050 respectively, which is the most important component to our city Dhaka and good utilization for different business prospect.
