Abstract: Nowadays, waste management is a major concern for societies. Waste management is a problem that affects a wide range of businesses, including industry, services, and cities. As a result of substantial population increase, urbanization, and consumerism, the problem has gotten worse. This review paper comprehensively explores the technology in which a process architecture based on high-temperature gasification, syngas purification, and processing to methanol synthesis is used to transform waste and non-recyclable plastics into methanol. When methanol is produced using the Waste to Methanol process, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by over 35% when methanol is produced using fossil fuels. Scientific efforts to identify potential uses for these materials were prompted by the increasingly stringent disposal regulations. As a result, numerous contributions to construction materials, energy production, agriculture, pollution control, and other critical processes were identified and developed.
But there are additional applications for these lignocelluloses' materials, and as science and technology develop, many more applications are anticipated in the future as societies place an increasing emphasison sustainability. Additionally, it is anticipated that many applications will be on a very modest scale, particularly when nations use rural development strategies to impede urbanization. Furthermore, the application of science may be constrained by non-scientific considerations, the fundamental idea of which relates to the economics of many processes. The final decisions about particular uses may ultimately come down to politics, either in the form of taxes or laws that favor one activity over another. It is also anticipated that some traditional uses, like burning straw, will eventually be phased out, leading to laws that encourage other uses.
