Abstract: Agricultural residues has biomass energy potential as alternative energy. One way to manage agricultural waste is to use pyrolysis. The research method used design manufactures and pyrolysis systems tests to produce biomass from agricultural residues. The pyrolysis system is made of a type of open back reactor which is connected to the cyclone and condenser. Three types of agricultural residues were tested using this pyrolysis system. The design test results show heat propagation outside the vessel is 6 oC/min, whereas in the reactor vessel is 4.83oC/min. The results of the tests are gas, oil, and char. The rice husk and corn cobs residues produce gas that will be inserted into the gasoline engine. The volume of both residues is 0.053 m3 and produces 80 cc of each gas. The acacia wood waste will produce oil and char which have characteristics and are feasible to be used as alternative fuel.
