The biomass gasification process basically converts almost all the forms of biomass or solid fuels, such as, agricultural residues, corn-wastes, rice-husks, woods, wood-wastes, etc. into a combustible gas mixture which is normally called producer gas. The producer gas is comprised of carbon monoxide, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen. This process of conversion is typically used for various biomass materials, and it partially limits the combustion of such biomass during the process. The partial combustion occurs when the intake of air (oxygen) supply is controlled and its less than adequate quantity is fed into the system for the combustion of biomass. The Gasifier essentially acts as a reactor where various complex physical and chemical processes take place. Biomass gets dried, heated, pyrolysed, partially oxidized and reduced in this reactor during the process as it passes through the Gasifier, which ultimately yields the producer (inflammable) gas as a usable product. There are four distinct processes take place in a gasifier

1. Drying of the fuel

2. Pyrolysis

3. Combustion

4. Reduction
