Solid waste biomass contains a significant amount of carbohydrates and other combustible chemical compounds that have potential as an alternative energy source. In this paper, the synthesis of biomass energy potential assessment from solid waste and the development of a model equation was presented, in order to utilize as assessment tools for the Philippine local government units, most especially the established sanitary landfills and waste-to-energy technologies and facilities that are soon-to-be installed. Data for the said model equation was obtained from various Philippine government agencies, such as the Department of Energy, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and others. In order to accumulate those in the model, numerous concepts are applied, such as parameterization and others. Furthermore, a time-series study is subjected to analysis, in order to forecast of the biomass energy. Moreover, the biomass energy potential from the rest of the Philippine archipelago may be further evaluated with the use of the proposed model equation.
Key words: biomass / energy model / renewable energy / waste to energy assessment
