For catalyst performance assessment of blast furnace slag as a low-cost catalyst, the cracking runs of frying sunflower oil were carried out in the presence of two different catalysts (blast furnace slag and calcium oxide) and also as non-catalytic. At the end of the studies performed, the catalysts were comparatively evaluated via the products of yields and some physicochemical properties such as density, viscosity, higher heating value, etc. The product generated by using the blast furnace slag exhibited better results than the others. On the other hand, it was seen that the product with blast furnace slag possessed the important hydrocarbon compounds in the range of C-8-C-14 atoms.
