The use of hydrogen as an alternative fuel is gaining more acceptance as the environmental impact of hydrocarbons becomes obvious. There have many ways of alternative hydrogen production such as electrolysis, pyrolysis and gasification of biomass. Gasification coupled with gas shift is the most widely practiced process route for biomass to hydrogen. Thermal, steam and partial oxidation gasification technologies are under development around the world. The feedstocks may include agricultural and forest product residues of hard wood, soft wood and herbaceous species. However, the production efficiency (the amount of gaseous energy recovery from the feedstock used to produce hydrogen) must be improved and an infrastructure for efficiently transporting and distributing hydrogen is to be developed. This research project was carried out to simulate the gasification technology using multi feed stock basis where to find ways to obtain rich hydrogen gas. The raw materials that choosen as feedstock are empty fruit bunches, rice husk and rubber wood. The parameters that were investigated are reactor temperature is 900°C and steam/biomass ratio between 0.7-0.9 to obtain maximum hydrogen yield. The percentages of error of simulation compared to experimental data for hydrogen production is between 30% to 40%. Based on the comparison with experimental that done by Laohalidanond et.al (2006). At the end, the economic feasibility ofthe hydrogen production was investigated.
