Abstract— Biomass is a renewable energy source that is sustainable and also provides solution to the growing pollution problem. Poor electricity production in Nigeria is a major contributor to the country’s low industrial development, despite the fact that the country is endowed with oil and other numerous natural resources. This might get worse as the country’s population keeps increasing added to more energy demand by the ever expanding industrial sector. Biomass for heat and power production holds a large potential as a source of renewable energy and reduction of greenhouse gas emission. If energy derived from renewable energy sources is added to the current energy supply in the country, it could be enough to place the country in the category of industrial nations without significant increase in environmental pollution. Sawdust which is treated as waste in Nigeria because of its low burning efficiency could be used to power steam turbine for production of electricity. In this way, power production in the country will be increased. The aim of this study is to design and fabricate a biomass steam turbine that will use sawdust as its source of fuel to produce electricity.
