This article analyzes the gross potential of local hydrocarbon waste and biomass using the example of the Republic of Uzbekistan with the aim of producing bioenergy. To calculate the raw material potential, we used official and reference data on the production and consumption of fuel, fertilizers and the formation of organic waste, the accumulation of municipal solid waste (MSW), the amount of saline land where halophytic plantations can be created, which can be considered as biomass. Based on the collected data, mathematical operations and calculations of the potential of biogas technology were performed. A block diagram has been developed that describes the steps of a Geo Information Systems (GIS) map. GIS maps have been created that give a visual representation of the spatial distribution of the gross potential of various types of waste in the regions of the republic and can serve as a tool in planning the distribution of biogas technology.
