In this work the temperatures of the thermal decomposition of model waste mixtures were determined with and without catalysts under slow heating conditions applying thermogravimetry-mass spectrometry (TG/MS) technique. The catalytic effect of HZSM-5 and Ni-Mo catalysts were tested on the thermal stability of model waste mixtures. Significantly decreased thermal decomposition temperature (by about 200°C) was observed in case of plastic mixture in the presence of 10 % HZSM-5 catalyst. The catalytic effect of HZSM-5 catalyst was hindered when the domestic waste model mixtures contained biomass components as well. The effect of cellulose and lignin on the catalytic activity of HZSM-5 catalyst was tested and significant poisoning effect was observed in both cases. The presence of 50% cellulose or 10% lignin in the waste mixture completely deactivates the HZSM-5 catalyst.
