Abstract: As biomass and municipal solid wastes become increasingly viable fossil fuels alternatives, more researches are being conducted to improve on the processes for their conversion to energy or energy carriers. Gasification is one of such processes and it forms the core of this project. This project presents a specified design of a small-scale fixed-bed reactor for the purpose of investigating the gasification processes of biomass and municipal solid wastes. Gas extraction ports are evenly distributed along the height of the reactor to extract product gases and accommodate thermo-couples for temperature measurement. A cyclone separator was incorporated to clean the gases as well as extract bio-oil from the gases.
