Torrefaction is a pretreatment process of biomass at temperature rangeof200-300 °Cwith the absence of oxygen. The objective of this paper isto conduct a torrefaction experiment as a way to get a better fuel quality and to treat the biomass into high calorific value biomass. This experiment also wants to optimize the best particle size used during theexperiment. The problem of biomass is that it content high moisture which result in a high mass biomass. The particle size itselfgives it significant effect to relative weight lost during the torrefaction experiment. The different particle size of wood is putunder aninert condition byflushing thenitrogen into the reactor. Thetemperature of the reactor wasraised to different desired levels, i.e. 220,250 or 300 °Cat a constant rate of 10deg/min by an electric furnace surrounding the reactor.
