In this investigation, a mixture of sugarcane bagasse and castor oil was subjected to pyrolysis for liquid fuel production. The pyrolysis process was carried out using aluminosilicates with different Si/Al ratios of 7, 5, 4, 3, and 1 as catalyst, with the main objective to investigate the effect of the Si/Al ratios of the catalyst on the hydrocarbon content of liquid produced. The experimental results show that production of liquid was achieved at the temperature range of 330 to 440 O C, and the liquid fuels produced were analyzed using gas chromatographymass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique for component identification. Analysis of the product using GC-MS technique revealed the presence of a series of compounds in the liquids, and broadly belongs to hydrocarbon, alcohol, ester, ketone, aldehyde, and acid. The results display significant effect of the catalyst composition on the composition of the liquid, the hydrocarbon contents in particular, in which the smaller the Si/Al ratio, the higher the hydrocabon content of the liquid, with the higest content of 67.8%.
