Abstract

Simulation for Hydrogen Production from Palm Waste via Supercritical Gasification Using Concentrated Solar Energy is actually one of the alternatives used for hydrogen production instead of using the experimental method. Hydrogen has the potential as an alternative clean energy. The relevancy of choosing palm waste as the source of biomass is because it can be considered as the most abundant waste in Malaysia with the production of 70 million tons annually. The purpose for this project is to develop a simulation for the hydrogen production from palm waste using Aspen Hysys. Besides, this work also includes parametric studies on the developed simulation to determine the effect of temperature, pressure and steam to biomass ratio to the hydrogen yielded. Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) from palm waste has been used as the feed for the simulation. It is found that increment in temperature and steam to biomass ratio promotes hydrogen production whereas increment in pressure resulted in decrement of hydrogen yielded. The results are compared with published literatures on the different systems and the comparison shows that the results are in agreement to some extend due to the different basis.
