Abstract: The dissertation is concerned with the performance of a bifunctional nickel-containing catalyst for the hydrodeoxygenation of lignin-based source materials. The investigated catalyst has proven capable of deoxygenating model compounds of lignin (phenol, guaiacol and 2-(2-Methoxyphenoxy)-1-phenylethanone) as well as lignin-based materials, such as pyrolysis oil, organosolv lignin and hydrothermically treated black liquor. Complementary analysis concerning the catalysts poisoning and identifying influencing factors within relevant processes determined practical constraints in it's utilization.
