In the case of the hydroprocessing of vegetable oils, the liquid products consist of straight chain n-alkanes with 15-20 carbons, which are formed via three different reaction pathways: decarbonylation, decarboxylation, and hydrodeoxygenation (Sotelo-boy et al.
The final step is a process called hydrodeoxygenation, in which hydrogen is added to the purified algal oil to remove oxygen, creating diesel with the clean byproduct of water (H2O).
In BM catalytic hydroliquefaction hydrogen is consumed mainly in hydrodeoxygenation reactions and Co-Mo or red mud, known as powerful catalysts in the processing of fossil BM, can be successfully used [69].
