|Abstract:||Refineries Residual Fuel Oil (RFO) and Bakelite (BL) and were co-pyrolyzed together using catalyst ZSM-5 under the atmospheric pressure with different mixing ratios of the feedstocks. The TGA analysis shows that most of the degradation take place between the temperature range of 250-400oC. The studies were carried out at two different temperatures of 500oC and 600oC using a batch reactor with different blended ratios, with blended feedstocks to catalyst ratio of 4:1. The effects of the two variables i.e. temperature and blending ratios among the two feedstocks, in terms of the products yield of liquid fuel, gas, coke and conversion were determined. The blending ratio of 4:1 (RFO: BL) yielding highest conversion of 76 wt. % at 600oC was found to be the most favourable condition in this investigation.|
