The aim of this project is to study the potential of biomass resource available in the country for use in biohydrogen production. The objectives of the research project are to characterize different biomass sources based on biomass properties. The biomass properties being studied are moisture content, calorific value, elemental composition, ash content, volatile matter content and fixed carbon content. In general, two main analyses are conducted: Ultimate and Proximate analysis. The main equipments to be used are CHNS Analyzer, Moisture Analyzer, Bomb Calorimeter and Thermal Gravimetric Analyzer. The study consists of a series of experiments and analysis relating to the properties of the biomass samples to look into the prospect for biohydrogen production. Biomass means any plant-derived organic matter available on a renewable basis. Biomass is basically organic material cultivated energy crops derived from agriculture or woodbased operations to produce solid, liquid or gaseous fuels. Biohydrogen is the process of producing hydrogen from biological processes or biomass. Biohydrogen production has become an important study since it is known that fossil fuels resources in the world is depleting at ahigh rate. The analysis would help characterize different biomass samples for the purpose of biohydrogen production and help realize the potential of biohydrogen production in the country.
