Recently many countries have started work for the replacement of fossil fuels. Many researchers have reported that vegetable oil and biodiesel can be used as a substitute of petroleum fuels. This review article deals about the state of art of energy extraction from waste material by thermochemical conversion methods. The world is facing lot of problem due to accumulation of different types of waste such as waste plastic, waste tires, waste lubricating oils, waste transformer oil etc. It is very much essential to find an efficient process as a potential solution of these wastes. Thermochemical conversion methods are the best way to convert this waste material into potential energy form. In this article the various methods such as direct combustion, liquefaction, pyrolysis, gasification has been discussed. This article also gives information about scope of use of the products obtained by these processes.
