In this investigation, a mixture of sugarcane bagasse and rubber seed oil was subjected to pyrolysis for liquid fuel production. A series of pyrolysis experiments was conducted using zeolite X synthesized from rice husk silica and aluminum metal through solgel temperatures of 600, 700, 800, and 900 oC, to enable the evaluation of the effect of calcination temperatures on the chemical composition of the liquid fuel obtained. The pyrolysis experiments were conducted at the temperature range of 250 to 500 oC, and the liquid fuels produced were analyzed using gas chromatographymass spectrometry (GCMS) technique for component identification. The experimental results indicate that liquid fuels composed of a series of compounds which can be categorized into hydrocarbon, alcohol, ester, and ketone. The results also display significant effect of the calcination temperatures on the composition of the liquid. Liquid fuel with the highest hydrocarbon content of 89.3% was obtained using the catalyst calcined at 700 oC.
