The energy consumption and demand in the world today has become a critical issue. The energy resources such as fossil fuels, that we currently relying on are very quickly depleting thus lies the need for research to develop alternative renewable resources that can cater to our demand and consumption. Biomass energy is the one of the best alternative enerev sources that is needs to be studied in order to solve this issue. This is because biomass energy is renewable and environmental friendly. Furthermore, biomass materials are available in almost all of the countries that could reduce the dependence foreign resource for fuel requirements. The steam aasification of biomass (cellulose) when coupled with in situ C02 capture using CaO is a promising pathway for the renewable production ofHydrogen (H2). A H2-rich steam results from the conversion of biomass with steam at moderate temperature (~400-700°C) by manipulating the equilibrium composition of the conversion Droduct with the removal of C02 as soon as it formed. CaO react directly with C02 to form a solid CaC03. Optionally, the CaO can be regenerated from CaC03 byheating it around 700-950°C. The main objective in this project is to optimize the parameters affecting the biomass gasification in maximizing the hydrogen yield from a local biomass, PKS (palm kernel shell).
