Catalytic cracking of palm oil methyl ester (POME) to liquid hydrocarbons has been conducted by two bifunctional natural zeolite based catalysts. Methyl esters were produced by transesterification of CPO by methanol/KOH in a favorable condition. The catalytic experiments were conducted in a batch microreactor equipped by heating and distillation apparatus. A mixture batch of methyl ester and catalyst powder was heated gradually up to 673 K for 2 h and followed by distillation at the same condition for 2 h.
The result showed that modified natural zeolite catalysts were active catalysts in the cracking of POME to hydrocarbons.
