The objective of this paper is to discuss the various technology and methods for producing energy from waste & its advantages. These technologies are incineration, gasification, plasma arc gasification, pyrolysis, anaerobic digestion. These technologies reduce volume of waste, environmental influence threat to public health and the dependency of the fossil fuel for generating power. The efficiency of this technology is up to 20-40%. As per rough idea, a typical 100000 tonnes per annum waste to energy plant will produce around 7MW of electricity, which is sufficient to power approximately 10,000 homes and cost of the energy is around 0.03$ -0.05$ per Kilo-watt Hours depend upon the technologies.
