It will be every beautifull effort to exercise the waste to energy conversion for small cities like Gorakhpur. The present paper basically a small effort to familiarize some thermochemical processes for such cities. In a survey it was found that daily on an average per capita solid waste generation from the residential area of the Gorakhpur city is about 0.270 kg. though the municilple standard(0.375 grams) is quite higher. The present paper deals with all possible waste management technologies and this paper mainly focuses on plasma techniques. Plasma pyrolysis and plasma gasification are advanced processes and they transforms the waste in to useful gases which is a good source of energy. The extremely high temperatures generated by plasma torches have spurred development of their application to waste processing, as they are capable of significantly decreasing the waste volume to a non-leachable residue. Catalytic pyrolysis which overcomes the issues associated with thermal pyrolysis but cost of catalyst used condition the economy of the process. Microwave pyrolysis which is new not due to the fact that microwave energy is used. It is new because microwave energy is used for the destruction of waste materials in to fuels and chemical. It provides fast heating and better control over the temperature.
