This project is entitled „Effect of Fuel Moisture Content on Solid Waste Combustion‟. Nowadays, people produced large amount of waste, either in the form of solid, liquid or gas everyday. These wastes can be treated in various methods according to its categorization. Gasification process is a popular method which is not only able to burn up the waste, but also have the potential to generated energy. Wood waste which came from various industries makes up a large amount of the solid waste. In order to obtain the maximum efficiency with the minimum production of product gases, this project is aim to determine the optimum operating parameters of moisture content in solid waste combustion. The scopes of this report are running of experimental work under various operating parameters which is fuel moisture content, determination of temperature distribution at the axial and outlet of the gasifier, determination of the ignition front velocity and ignition front rate and analysis on gasifier performance. Several samples of different moisture contented wood wastes are used for combustion in this research. Thermocouples and data logger are used in temperature measurement. From experimental work results, the temperature distribution of all fuel moisture samples can be observed except the wood waste sample with highest fuel moisture content which is failed to observe. The optimum operating parameter for wood waste combustion is identified at fuel moisture content of 13.04%. In combustion at this 13.04% fuel moisture content, the gasifier shows the greatest performance.
