Presently the utilization of energy is mainly dependent on the fossil fuels. The composition and behavior of the atmosphere is changed drastically due to its polluting components. The gap between theincreasing and it can be reduced by utilizing through bioabundantly available and technical feasible fuels, which can fill the gap between the energIn this paper a detail discussion on the process of fluidized bed gasification to utilize as an energy source is made and theproducer gases obtained from the gasification process is compared with the other author for validamade for the equivalence ratio of 0.12 to 0.26 and it was found that the compositions of Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane and hydrogen are obtained within the acceptable range in comparison with the other authors.
