Abstract

The importance of biomass as an alternative source of energy is becoming more acknowledgeable among many researchers throughout the world. With the world natural resources lessen as time goes by, there is a need to find renewable sources. Many of the research found emphasize mainly on biomass in the eastern part of the world such as the wheat, cottons and also aquatic biomass. In this particular study, experiments will focus on the potential of tropical biomass. As Malaysia is well - known for it s vast source of plants and agricultural activities, the wastes produced can be processed and utilized as a source of fuels and for electricity generation. The main objective of this project is to find out the calorific value of various biomasses using the method of direct combustion. In the end the result is compare d with values obtained using the BOMB Calorimeter. This project will also measure the effectiveness of the combustion furnace and to discuss any weaknesses found for future improvement.
