The intensity of waste generation has become one of the biggest problems in today’s society, as it is a virtually impossible problem to be eliminated, where one of the possible solutions would be to take advantage of the benefits that waste can bring, which is the generation of electric energy through the use of biogas generated in landfills. Thus, this theme was thought to provide a general understanding of landfill, solid waste, biogas production and the electric energy generation through the use of biogas. In order to take advantage of this generation potential, it will be important to identify ways of treating waste, mechanisms for obtaining biogas and converting biogas into electrical energy. Aiming to study the potential of energy generation from waste from a sanitary landfill in Foz do Iguaçu/PR, aiming to develop the use of biogas as an alternative source of renewable energy and to estimate the potential for generating electricity derived from methane gas from waste of landfill. With the calculation of the estimate of biogas generation, it was possible to verify that the sanitary landfill of Foz do Iguaçu has an average production capacity to generate enough biogas to feed approximately 964 homes by the year 2030.
