Hybrid catalysts consisting of a zeolite (ZSM-5 or Beta) and bentonite as a binder were prepared and characterized by XRD, pyridine FTIR and nitrogen adsorption. The hybrid catalysts exhibited similar properties as the combined starting materials. Catalytic pyrolysis over pure ZSM-5 and Beta as well as hybrid catalysts has been successfully carried out in a dual-fluidized bed reactor. De-oxygenation of the produced bio-oil over the different zeolitic materials was increased compared to non-catalytic pyrolysis over quartz sand.
