After successfully synthesized the nickel oxide catalyst with the hexagonal crystal shape and also the doping of different weight percent of iron, characterization of the catalyst has been done using TEM, FSEM, BET and etc. The effectiveness of the synthesized catalyst was demonstrated through the conversion of empty fruit brunches (EFB) into bio oil with presence of 5 different catalyst NiO, 1 wt%, 5 wt%, 10 wt% Fe-doped nickel oxide and one experiment without catalyst The catalytic slow pyrolysis method was used to determine and predict the optimum weight percent of Iron doped with nickel oxide at the conditions of 60 ml/min of nitrogen flow rate, temperature of 400oC. The results show the effects of the iron in producing hydrogen in the pyrolysis reaction, where the highest hydrogen amount produces where with 5 wt% Fe-NiO the optimum selectivity of hydrogen was 0.65 %. On the other hand the liquid yield of 39.80 wt% was obtained from the 10 wt% Fe-NiO catalyst.
