Waste incineration is a common practice of waste management tool in most developed countries, for the purpose of converting mass and volumes of waste into a very useful energy content. The aim of this study was to compare the costs benefits of waste incineration for Accra Brewery boiler plant and to investigate also the availability of waste and it´s compositions in Accra, as well as to determine the feasibility of using this waste as a source of fuel to the waste incineration plant. The analysis was carried out on waste calorific values/content and it was shown that the minimum heat content obtained from waste in Accra was above 7 MJ/kg. Therefore, it makes the waste viable to be incinerated. The following result has been observed: municipal solid waste incineration plant, the benefit outweighs the cost by one million euro when compared to the existing Accra Brewery boiler plant, indicating the higher profitability of the waste incineration plant. Regarding the findings made from the study, it sounds logical to conclude that: the result of the cost benefit analysis indicates potentials of economic savings for the use of waste incineration plant; it is therefore worthwhile for the management of Accra Brewery Limited to consider adding waste incineration to their agenda of improving costs savings.
