A study was carried out to examine the characteristics of municipal solid waste during composting process in On-Nuch mechanical biological treatment plant. Experiments were performed for determining the moisture content, heating value, proximate and ultimate compositions of waste and compare with European refuse-derived fuel standard. The result showed that municipal solid waste at 40 days of composting process has 20% of moisture content, 13 Mj/kg of heating value and 20% of ash content, hardly pass the European standard. Potential suggestion was discussed for further refuse-derived fuel production.
