Syngas in nature can be derived from many sources for instance biomass, natural gas and any hydrocarbon feedstock. Therefore it can replace our reliance on the fossil fuel in future, as they are finite. This research covers the analysis on the combustion efficiency on eight syngas composition that have various hydrogen and carbon moxide (H2/CO) ratio and the comparisons on the nitric oxide (NOx) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions. Each syngas was tested from 0kW load to 3kW load and all the data was taken upon the micro gas turbine (MGT) reaching stable and steady state conditions. It was found that high amount of hydrogen content in syngas lead to an increase in the combustion efficiency and emits more NOxemissions. CO emissions were released when the combustion efficiency is low and increase with the CO content in the syngas.
