This study was conducted to investigate the ability of reed as a Production of gases via gasification technique by using special gasifier made for this purpose and to evaluate the produced gases (CO, H2, CO2 and CH4). The results showed that the percentage of production gases was 15.6%, 10.2%, 7.81% and 1.69% for carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen and methane respectively. In addition, it showed that the highest temperature up to the gasifier was 700°C and the time required to complete gasification process was 23 min. The results indicated that 5 kg of reed was capable of producing 10 m3 of gases which produces about 1 HP-hr. that equivalent to 3.75 kWh.
