The fermentation of biomass-generated synthesis gas (syngas) was studied. Switchgrass and bermudagrass were gasified using three reactor operating conditions: air gasification, near pyrolysis, and steam. For switchgrass, the average CO concentration increased from 20 % with air to 47% with steam, while the H2 concentration increased from 6% to 18%. For bermudagrass, the CO concentration increased from 16% with air to 34% with steam, while the H2 concentration increased from 6% to 28%.
