Recycled Base Oil
Waste engine oil is a high pollutant material that requires responsible management. waste engine oil may cause damage to the environment when dumped into the ground or into water streams including sewers This may result in groundwater and soil contamination recycling of such contaminated materials will be beneficial in reducing engine oil costs. In addition, it will have a significant positive impact on the environment. the conventional methods of recycling of waste engine oil either requires a high cost technology such as vacuum distillation on the use of toxic materials such as sulfuric acid . access to lubricants is essential to any modern society and not only does lubrication reduce friction and wear by interposition of a thin liquid film between moving surfaces, but it also removes heat, keeps equipment clean, and prevents corrosion. One of its important applications includes gasoline and diesel engine oils. Waste lubricating oil refers to the engine oil, transmission oil, hydraulic and cutting oils after use. It is also refers to the degradation of the fresh lubricating components that become contaminated by metals, ash, carbon, residue, water, varnish, gums, and other contaminating materials, in addition to asphaltic compounds which result from the bearing surface Of the engine these oils must be changed and removed from the automobile after a few thousand kilometers of driving because of stress from serious deterioration in service. The amount of lubricating oils that is collected annually in Europe and USA is very large, approximately 1.7 to 3.5 million tons. this large amount of waste engine oils has a significant impact on both economical and environmental aspects. They cost millions of dollars to manufacture and represent a high pollutant material when disposed of. In summary if discharged into the land, water or even burnt as a low grade fuel, this may cause serious pollution problems because they release harmful metals and other polluntants into the environment. Chemidor salaf plant can re-refining about 1700 Mt of used oil as monthly basis and extracting high level and high quality base oil with covering all global standards in respect of issue.
