The physico-chemical properties of prepared catalyst were characterized by XRD, EDS, Sol-gel FESEM, and FT-IR analyses. The thermal stability of the multi-metal catalyst was studied with TGA. To in- Car catalytic converter vestigate the activity of the catalyst, Conversion of Cladophora glomerata (C. glomerata) into bio-products was Pyrolysis carried out via a ﬁxed bed reactor with and without catalyst at the temperature of 500 °C. Although the catalyst didn’t catalyze the gasiﬁcation reaction, bio-oil was upgraded over the catalyst. The main eﬀect of the catalyst on the bio-oil components is
