Abstract

Pyrolysis of Waste Vegetable Oils (WVO) is a potential technique for producing high quality diesel, gasoline, naphtha, and even hydrogen. Preliminary studies have demonstrated that the catalytic pyrolysis of WVO using red mud will result in the production of low oxygenated fuels and hydrogen. Utilizing different model compounds and operating parameters, this research seeks to elucidate the mechanisms by which hydrogen and hydrocarbons are produced from the catalytic pyrolysis of WVO.
