Abstract: Reducing our dependence on the fossil fuels and other non-renewable sources is the immediate need of the time. Biomass conversion technology is an important process that aims at doing this by extracting energy out of the biomass. Thermo chemical conversion is a process under the biomass conversion technology that aims at doing this in the best way by extracting fuel oil out of the biomass. Direct liquefaction, a specific technology under the thermo chemical conversion has been effectively used in the recent times to extract the oils from the biomass. Here, it has been proposed to apply the thermo chemical conversion for the proper disposal of the domestic wastes and the extraction of the fuel oils from the domestic wastes by using the same. The wastes are first categorized and are dumped separately, based on their composition (animal or plant wastes) they are processed in the thermochemical processors designed to work under different operating conditions based on the requirement for a feed of specific composition. Liquefaction process is the key process to obtain the liquid fuel or oil and is designed so as to enhance the quality of the fuel obtained by increasing the hydrogen to carbon ratio of the fuel obtained. It thus creates a more hydrocarbon like fuel and thus a better bio-fuel or oil.
