Abstract

•The aggregation of bacterial biomass nanoparticles is less than alumina supports.•The level of upgrading with bio-Pd was comparable to alumina supported Pd.•Lower coke yield was observed with bio-Pd compared to alumina supported Pd.•Sulfur and metals reduction with bio-Pd was comparable to Co–Mo/Al2O3 catalyst.
