Alternative fuels, such as biomass now play an increasingly important role in the energy
industry. One biomass energy based technology that has been proven reliable and had
been extensively used is biomass gasification. Biomass gasification is defined as
incomplete combustion of biomass resulting in production of combustible gases
consisting of Carbon monoxide (CO), Hydrogen (H2) and traces of Methane (CH4). In
this project, the feedstock is focusing on the non-palm biomass sources only due to its
wide area to be explored compared to palm biomass that had been commonly used in
biomass studies. Based on the statistic of United States energy consumption, in 2007,
biomass recorded 3.615 quadrillion Btu energy consumed, which is a quite low as
compared to other energy sources. This give a signal that there are wide chance to
enhance the energy consumption using biomass especially the non-palm biomass
resources. The objective of this project is to investigate the biomass characterization in
gasification technology in enriching hydrogen production. The biomass samples will be
characterized in order to identify their physical and chemical properties. The result will
be analyze and relate to hydrogen produced from the gasification of the biomass
