Since more than 75% of the world's energy needs are currently met by fossil fuels, the growing worry about climate change as well as the depletion of hydrocarbon resources has compelled scientists worldwide to discover alternative sources of renewable and sustainable energy. Hence, it has become necessary to reduce depilation of poultry manure in addition to meeting energy demands. By extracting energy from the feedstock through the thermal gasification process, this research aims to address waste management and reduce environmental impact. High-hydrogen feedstock is widely available. Waste poultry (biomass) and steam were used as the gasification agent in Aspen Plus modeling and simulation of the process. According to the outcome, 1000 kg/h and 2500 kg/h1000 kg/h and 2500kg/h of the poultry litter and steam was able to yield 1220 kg/h of hydrogen and electricity of 2,500kw/h, this identified that a poultry litter as a promising candidate to reduce fossil fuel dependency.
