In this investigation, a mixture of cassava solid waste and rubber seed oil was subjected to pyrolysis for liquid fuel production. A series of pyrolysis experiments was conducted with fixed composition of 50 gr cassava solid waste and 150 mL rubber seed oil. The experiments were conducted using zeolite-A synthesized from rice husk silica and aluminum metal through sol-gel route and subsequently calcined at different temperatures as catalyst. with the main objective to investigate the effect of calcination temperatures of the catalyst on the chemical composition of the liquid fuel obtained. The sample was pyrolyzed at 350 oC, and the composition of liquid fuel produced was analyzed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique. The results of GC-MS analyses reveal that liquid fuels composed of a series of organic compounds, broadly belong to hydrocarbon, alcohol, ester, ketone, aldehyde, and acid. The results also display significant effect of the calcination temperatures of the catalyst on the composition of the liquid, the hydrocarbon contents in particular, in which the fuel with the highest hydrocarbon content of 90% was obtained using the catalyst calcined at 800 oC.
