Waste oil as a commodity

Waste oil

Sooner or later, businesses owning oil-filled equipment have to face the question of waste oil handling. Over time, oil ages and becomes contaminated. In order to monitor its state and possible further use, samples of oil are taken for analysis.

Existing legislation prohibits dumping waste oil into the environment, it must be collected and recycled. Very often used oil is stored in tanks taking up a lot of storage space. Generally,  there is just no time to deal with the waste.

One of the possible solutions to this problem is to sell the waste oil. The state issues licenses to businesses for collecting and processing this material. Interested organizations buy used oil.

Further fate of processed oil depends on the recycling method selected.  The oil could be purified to reduce the amount of harmful impurities and be used as fuel. This oil can be sold to boiler rooms, factories and plants. For example, waste oil is often used instead of coke. But it needs to be understood that even with the decreased amount of pollutants in the oil, it will still emitting harmful gases into the atmosphere when burned, making an already difficult environmental situation even worse.

Therefore, regeneration of waste oil is the preferred method of recycling. This process completely recovers oil properties and important operating parameters. Regenerated oil can be re-used. It is also sold to refineries as raw material for new oil production. It is cheaper than buying new oil.
