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
