In today's high energy demand world, power generation makes important role day by days. There are many different kind of power generation system available for instance biomass, solar, nuclear, wind and conventional energy. Anyway nature energy will dry up sooner or later. Estimated that by year 2020, a total of 1.8 million ton of solid wastes by- products and 2.5 million m3 of wastewater are generated. As the largest palm oil export country, Malaysia has the advantages of using palm waste as an alternative energy. In the palm industry, as much as 70% of the fresh fruit brunches (FFBs) are turned into wastes in the form of empty fruit bunches (EFBs). Thus, palm oil factories have the potential of generating large amounts of electricity using their own residues. Extra power can be exported to the national grids. The objective of this thesis is done focused on the utilization of empty fruit brunches as a combustion fuel to generate steam as an alternative way to consume power for industrial use. It will be focus on the developing the usage in waste from palm oil mill that is empty fruit brunches. At the end of the thesis, an actual design of biomass combustion chamber that results a schematic diagram for the empty fruit bunches needed to generate a value of steam is produced.
