    Waste is the discard matters that comes from human activity and require proper disposal to avoid harmful effects to the environment.Though, there is still energy hidden inside the disposal and one need to recover that method because it is considered a green and clean renewable energy that can reduce greenhouse gas emission and lessen the effect of global warming. This paper provides an overview of the basic principle, steps involved in extraction of valuable energy from municipal solid waste (MSW) by using Air Fed Refuse derived fuel (RDF) gasification, benefits of gasification on environment and how gasification advances over incineration. MSW gasification is measured as the most prospective technology to replace incineration, because of the advantages, such as the strict control of pollution, significant volume reduction and enhances recycling rates.
