The abundance of palm pressed fibre (PPF) biomass waste generates greenhouse gases. Therefore, an experimental study on catalytic pyrolysis technology using a tubular reactor on PPF oil was performed at temperature of 450 °C, which gave oil product yields of 44.1 percent. Viscosity of the PPF oil as a function of temperature was measured at different temperatures ranging from 25 °C to 50 °C. The viscosity of the oils was shown to decrease with increases in temperature. Finally, PPF oil was tested as lubricant in strip drawing and compared with palm olein (PO). A comparison of strip drawn aluminium samples show that the lubrication performance of PPF oil varies with PO in a remarkably similar way.
