At present the fuel and energy from Biomass is one of key area for the solution to decentralized energy production The objective of this work concern to give the state and art of several computational modeling methodology process synthesis, and optimization process. In addition to this, risk analysis and optimization were carried out based on changing several techno economic input variables. The stochastic analysis using Monte Carlo simulation was implemented in a spreadsheet model utilizing @Risk v. 4.5 software for Excel and optimization using genetic algoritms by the Envolver software. The preliminary results of these seweral projects under developments are reported. The important advantage of computer aided process are the possibility to quickly design, analysis with precision and reliability. The project of charcoal and fuel making process using thermal energy from small cogeneration internal combustion motor has shown to be the more appropriate system.

Keywords : Biofuel; Simulation; Energy; optimization; Sintesy; Analysis.
