In this research work, pyrolysis plantain and yam peels to produce bio-oil were investigated. The pyrolysis conditions include, wide temperature ranges at an interval of 100 oC (200 – 700 oC), absence of a catalyst, then the use of zeolite –Y catalyst using heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, which were respectively imposed and used to produced bio-oil. The GC-MS machine was used to analyze or characterize the obtained bio-oil while proximate analysis and XRF machine were used to characterize the plantain and yam peels feed. The residue, biochar, from the pyrolysis process, was also characterized using the XRF machine.
