Due to the global issue, the sources of petroleum is decreasing and the price of petroleum is increasing due to high demand in the market. Beside that the usage of petroleum give negative impact to the environment. It is important to looking other sources that can be replace the petroleum as fuel and green energy. The sources that we looking need to be renewable sources so that it will easily to get and can be used continuously in a long period. Indirectly it will reduce the dependency on the fossil-fuel. Particularly hydrogen can be one alternative to replace the petroleum as a fuel. It can introduce a clean-fuel to the environment because the combustion of hydrogen, will produce energy and water. Biomass is a good source in the bio-hydrogen process especially country like Malaysia that have many biomass sources. One of biomass source in Malaysia is a palm oil waste such as empty fruit bunch (EFB). The bio-hydrogen process can be develop by using gasification process that can be attractive but it need energy intensive. Hence this project is to investigate the feasibility of bio-hydrogen process to reduce the cost via torrified empty fruit bunch and flowsheet of the process. This hydrogen prediction model is conducted at operating temperature 600K to 1500K at atmospheric pressure. Based on the graph temperature torrified can increase 60 mole% of hydrogen in product gas. In the steam/biomass ratio of 3, it observe that 56 mole% hydrogen . Then the project is analyze of parameter indicator such as hydrogen yield, mass conversion, thermodynamic efficiency and hydrogen efficiency. The effect of temperature will increase 79% of hydrogen yield in the product gas composition.
