Efficient fuel production and energy-generation with no or reduced carbon release is an important need in today’s generation. Conversion technologies have been designed to convert bio-based waste materials into a useable form of fuel and energy. Various methods are employed in these technologies such as anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis, gasification etc. These technologies not only help generate refined fuel products but also release low carbon content that helps to maintain the environment. Herein, an overview of these technologies has been discussed.
