Syngas technology is one of a well-known alternative process way to produce valuable chemical products. This research discussed on biomass composition which related to syngas production yield via gasification process. Four type of biomass from wood are selected to be model for the experiment: Neem tree (Azadirachta indica), Cassia tree (Senna siamea), Eucalyptus tree (Eucalyptus melliodora), Mimosa tree (Leucena leucocepphala) were analyzed for proximate and ultimate analysis. The results show the most heating value detected in eucalyptus biomass (19,267.65 kJ/kg), Cassia and Neem wood (17,500 kJ/kg and 17,417 kJ/kg repectively). The high heating value of Eucalyptus wood exhibit higher than that in coal and rice straw (18,840 kJ/kg and 14,826 kJ/kg, in consequence). Nitrogen contains in all biomass show a rarely bit composition (Eucalyptus: 0.2 %, Cassia: 0.17% and Neem: 0.0%). In conclusion, three different kind of wood biomass have a potential to be applied for syngas production as a new biomass for linear heart gasifier in the experiment.
