Abstract

In Malaysia, the growth of economic is connected to the fossil energy resources which are continued to effect by the growing of energy demand. Hydrogen is an alternative for energy and electricity generation, especially for transportation application and can significantly reduce the carbon monoxide (CO) emission and air pollution. The research on renewable energy especially from biomass such as oil palm empty fruit bunch (OPEFB) can contributes to reduce the concern over the energy insecurity and will help Malaysia in creating a sustainable energy supply. Research on the hydrogen production process by using OPEFB was reported in several papers. However, the review criteria and the best technology for hydrogen production process application are still missing. This paper attempts to develop hydrogen technology database from various types of hydrogen production process of OPEFB. It can be used to determine the most feasible and promising route to be applied. This study is also significant in helping the industry to see the differences of various design alternatives and make process design decisions on them.
