Conversion of palm starch waste biomass into energy sources through gasification process could be done to meet the energy requirement in palm noodle industry. This research used the Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF-5) based on the palm Starch waste. This is due to the how to overcome the solid waste around the home industry of noodle in Jawa Tengah. This study was conducted to determine the performance of up-draft gasifier with variations of air flow rate, i.e., 72 lpm, 95 lpm, and 123 lpm. The results showed that the variation of air flow rate has affected to the gasification product. The optimum LHV value occurred at 122 l/m air flow rate, where the LHV value increased with the increase of air flow rate, but after passing 122 l/m, the LHV value was continually decreasing.
