The idea of research included investing the thermal energy of municipal waste to generate electric power. This research has done to meet the daily needs of the Dijlah University College of electricity and save the amounts of money, which were spent to buy electricity from the state. Also to save the amounts that were spend in running the diesel generators, when electric power outages from the national grid. This is always happening. The research proved that the establishment of a station to burn 450 tons of municipal waste daily can generate more than 3MW. This electric power covers the total needs of the college for 24 hours per day. The project provides annual amounts of (2310000) two million and three hundred ten thousand dollars annually
