  • Abstract The feasibility study aims at evaluating the possibility of using small-scale solid waste treatment plant for the small-sized communities. Small-scale solid waste treatment facility not only allows to almost completely utilize the waste, but also by using waste to energy technologies it empowers electricity generation. National Sun Yat-sen University (NSYSU) campus is selected as a background for the feasibility study. Two scenarios are evaluated, which addresses two very different waste quantities. Both of them are feasible, but only under certain circumstances. Besides the fact that such project protects NSYSU from the electricity price increase, it brings the value to Taiwan as well. The project suits current renewable energy policy by increasing electricity’s production from renewable energy sources and lessening CO2 emissions. In addition, it also contributes to country’s independence on imported energy sources. To conclude, the results from this feasibility study may be transferable to other locations, but it is crucial to observe under which circumstances the results were achieved.
