    The small-scale incinerator uses the process of combustion to convert residential solid waste materials into several hazardous gases, ashes, and water. Without a proper filtration system, it will release hazardous combustion gases that can affect human health. Therefore, this study is embarked on an analysis of the composition of gasses obtained after being filtered via a dynamic wet scrubber system from incineration waste. The open burning of municipal solid waste (MSW) could be avoided. The ashes may contain toxic substances or metal that should be safely disposed of. This technology uses the dynamic wet scrubber to filter the gases released from combustion in the garbage tank of the incinerator. The design of the dynamic wet scrubber that has been fabricated was researched to focus on less of the maintenance process in the future. The double swirling water in the scrubber was used to collect the dirt particles and dust in the gases. The suction pump at the outlet of treated gas reduces installation and energy costs. The released emission gasses were monitored using some specific MQ gas sensor modules with Arduino and the data were analyzed using response Microsoft Excel, GraphPad Prism 8, and Design-Expert 13.
