1,3-propanediol promotes high market value as a result of its versatility as intermediate for the synthesis ofheterocycles and asa monomer for the production of improvised polyester, Polytrimethylene Terephtalate (PTT) (Silvia Casali, 2011). Sugarcane bagasse will act as raw material and react with bimetallic catalysts inPan- Reactor and undergo Hydrogenolysis Process. There will bethree main products by the end of this reaction, which are 1,2-propanediol, 1,3-propanediol and Ethylene Glycol (Mohanprasad A. Dasari, 2005). Hydrogenolysis catalytic process is performed using the combination oftwo metals, with copper as a based with the present of Zeolite as a carrier. Cerium, Manganese, Nickel, Zinc, Titanium and Cobalt are the perfect chosen metals based on their compatibility in electro negativity will combined with copper and tested its catalytic reaction during hydrogenolysis process. Besides the choice ofcatalyst, the effects of temperature, hydrogen pressure, carriers, initial water content and type of solid biomass are important features that needed tobemonitored inorder to generate high selectivity andyield of 1,3-propanediol.
