Efficient utilization of waste date pits for the synthesis of green diesel and jet fuel fractions

November 1, 2016

Date pits are considered one of the major agricultural wastes in Oman. The present 
work involves the synthesis of active catalysts from waste date pits carbon produced by 
carbonization and impregnation with Pt and Pd metals. Synthesized catalysts Pt/C and Pd/C 
were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, EDX, BET and XPS. The activity of the catalysts' 
performance was evaluated by the hydrodeoxygenation of date pits oil for the production of 
second-generation biofuels, which includes jet fuel and green diesel fractions. Results …
