Rice husks are an abundant waste from agricultural activities which have great potential as an alternative for fossil fuel. Rice husks converted to bio-gasoline by two main thermo-chemical processes: pyrolysis and upgrading process. In this project, fast pyrolysis and catalytic cracking process are chosenandrepresents through modeling. The results obtained from the modeling agrees with the theoretical value proven that the computational approach is an option instead of experimental works. From process modeling of bio-gasoline production, the effect of the temperature towards product yields is investigated. The highest yield of bio-oil and bio-gasoline achieved at temperature 773K and 823K respectively. Lowest cost of bio-gasoline production is obtained at range of temperature for fast pyrolysis and catalytic cracking process. In conclusion, products yield and total production cost of bio-gasoline depends on temperature of the process.
