The present invention relates to a hydrodeoxygenation process wherein activated carbon is used as support material for catalysts comprising sulfided Ni and sulfided Mo or W as hydrogenation component. The catalyst in this process shows stable activity over a prolonged period of time, while the process further shows selectivity for the "direct hydrodeoxygenation" pathway selectively producing C n paraffinic hydrocarbons over C n-1 paraffinic hydrocarbons.
