Abstract The land disposal of API separator sludges was investigated with regard to decomposition rates of organic constituents and the possible impact of these materials on plants and surface water or groundwater quality. Two oily sludges (one from a petroleum refinery and one from a petrochemical plant) were studied as to their phytotoxicity, biodegradability in soils, water-soluble constituents, and field mobility. Concentrations of refinery sludge of 5% v/v and above depressed ryegrass emergence and yield. The petrochemical sludge suppressed emergence and yield proportional to the amount of sludge applied, and the suppression lasted longer than that of the refinery sludge.
