Catalytic Pyrolysis Oil Upgrading Using Bentonite and Zeolist as Catalysts

A. Artigues, N. Puy, E. Fábregas & J. Bartrolí
Bio-oil is biomass-based pyrolysis product which is used as useful products and energy. The search of new upgrading processes for the enhancement of the yields and the quality of bio-oil is the key to improve the efficiency and reduce costs. Catalytic cracking upgrading is a process where deoxygenation occurs in presence of a catalyst at atmospheric pressure and hydrogen is not required. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of using 5,...
