Biomass gasification is considered as one of the most promising green energy sources provider. The greatest concern is the safety of biomass gasification operation. Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) method with the aid of Phast Risk software is used to perform preliminary safety assessment of biomass gasification system (pilot plant scale) located in Block P. The assessment consists of four major parts which are hazard identification, incident frequency estimation, consequence analysis and risk evaluation. Biomass Gasifier Section and Gas Purification system are identified as highly hazardous area with the event frequency ranging from 10-5 to 10-10 per year. Flammable release, toxic release and jet fire are the events being simulate in consequence analysis. Impact of the three events to the exposed personnel is minimal where minor injury may happen and fatality is unlikely to occur. Risk associated with the system is evaluated to be in ALARP region. Within ALARP region, risk should be reduced if practical, in general subject to cost benefit analysis. Further research is required in order to provide a more comprehensive risk assessment of biomass gasification system.
