Abstract

Industrial biomass is collected from liquid side streams of wood industry as well as from pulp and paper industry. For instance, crude tall oil (CTO) is a potential feedstock obtained from Kraft pulping process. CTO and its fractions such as tall oil fatty acid (TOFA) and distilled tall oil (DTO) are catalytically upgraded into value added hydrocarbons, these high value products can be regarded as a potential feedstock for steam crackers. This research work mainly addresses the pilot scale upgrading (HDO) study of TOFA and DTO over commercial NiMo catalyst.
