As the demand of fossil fuel grows day by day, the sources begin to deplete as well as it’s a non-renewable energy. Thus the need of a competitive renewable energy which can provide as good as fossil fuels keeps growing. In recent times biomass has emerged as a potential long term replacement for energy source instead of fossil fuel. Biomass gasification is one of the potential technologies that can convert biomass into clean and environmental energy. This is because this technology reduces the emission of Carbon Dioxide to the environment and palm kernel is being used as its feedstock due to the fact it produces high amount of hydrogen gas. This research paper is to develop a steady state and dynamic model of biomass gasification system which is located at Block P in University Teknologi PETRONAS. To fulfill this objective, information regarding the operating conditions of the system, and process flow diagram of the system need to be gathered. With using Aspen HYSYS software, a simulation model of biomass gasification is developed in this paper. In this research the temperature and steam to biomass ratio are manipulated to see the effect on gas production in steady state and dynamic model
