Abstract: The objective of this work was to investigate the use of catalyst to enhance H2/CO ratio and syngas production during homogeneous and heterogeneous tar cracking of rice husk biomass. The experiments were performed at atmospheric pressure in indirectly heated two-stage gasification system. The pyrolysis chamber temperature was set at 500oC and that of gasification chamber was varied between 800oC and 900oC for different experimental runs. Homogeneous and heterogeneous gasification was performed at different operating conditions. Results obtained shows that catalyst helped in increasing H2/CO ratio and heterogeneous gasification showed better results than homogeneous gasification.
