Efficient use of energy resources is one of the most sought after area of studies and research among energy and environment fields. The natural resources of fuel are depleting day by day. The use of renewable resources is considered as promising option. The recovery of waste heat from different thermal units such as boilers, internal combustion units, air conditioners etc. can save considerable amount of energy. Also it reduces thermal pollution. Various investigators have carried out investigation on the use of various waste heat recovery methods. Current review summarizes research and studies on regeneration and recovery of waste heat.
Key words: heat pumps exhaust gases, heat pipes, Rankine cycle, and combustion engines.
