Abstract

Hydrogenolysis of cork has been examined using a range of precious metal catalysts studying the effect of the support, added base and solvent used. The addition of a catalyst and a base resulted in a bio-oil increase of 9.3 – 158 % compared to when no catalyst was used along with an increase in lipid yield of 113-258 %. The solvent change to 2-methyl tetrahydrofuran from the original dioxane solvent system allowed for a change to a “greener” solvent as well as an increased yield from 11.5 wt% bio-oil yield to 42.6 wt% bio-oil yield, in the absence of base
