For the past decades, the flue gas emitted from Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator, Power Plant, and various industries are a permanent problem for the environment and has been affecting human life. Many flue gas filtration devices have been emerging out over the years. Although the Electrostatic Precipitator was an appropriate device due to high filtration efficiency, little pressure drop and energy efficiency, the cost and design of the Electrostatic Precipitator is a major restriction for

This article aims to design and develop a solar-powered cost-effective Needle-Plate typeelectrostatic precipitator which includes a static power converters and high voltage Transformer-Rectifier (T-R) set with an input voltage as 230V AC, output voltage as 80kV Direct Current (DC) and output current of40mA for mitigation of Flue gas emissions exhaust from Municipal Solid Waste Incinerator. The analysis of flue gas at ESP inlet and outlet has been performed using Ecotech stack sampler and flue gas analyzer. The obtained experimental results are validated with Emission standards provided in the Solid Waste Management rules book-India 2016.
