Hydrogen has special properties to replace fossil fuels as a renewable energy source. It is more energy efficient than gasoline, where it can store approximately 2.6 times more energy per unit mass than gasoline. Sourcing hydrogen from biomass is more environmentally friendly as the sustainability factor is covered. Biomass gasification has a promising future to replace fossil fuels. Its carbon neutral characteristic proves its suitability in today’s current ecosystem condition. In this work, a mixed-integer superstructure optimization framework is proposed on the cost minimization problem for determining the optimal feasible route for hydrogen production from biomass through gasification. We are interested to investigate various feasible technologies and methods available with their operating conditions that are linear/equality constraints to the conceptual process synthesis problem of the design of the most cost effective gasification route. Possible processes and technologies discussed in recent literature are compiled into a superstructure model. The superstructure modeling and optimization are solved in MATLAB to identify the most cost effective route.
