Alternative fuels, such as biomass now play an increasingly important role in the energy industry. One biomass energy based technology that has been proven reliable and had been extensively used is biomass gasification. Biomass gasification is defined as incomplete combustion of biomass resulting in production of combustible gases consisting of Carbon monoxide (CO), Hydrogen (H2) and traces of Methane (CH4). In this project, the feedstock is focusing on the non-palm biomass sources only due to its wide area to be explored compared to palm biomass that had been commonly used in biomass studies. Based on the statistic of United States energy consumption, in 2007, biomass recorded 3.615 quadrillion Btu energy consumed, which is a quite low as compared to other energy sources. This give a signal that there are wide chance to enhance the energy consumption using biomass especially the non-palm biomass resources. The objective of this project is to investigate the biomass characterization in gasification technology in enriching hydrogen production. The biomass samples will be characterized in order to identify their physical and chemical properties. The result will be analyze and relate to hydrogen produced from the gasification of the biomass
