This study describes hazardous waste generation and management in the petroleum re-refining industry (SOC 2992) - the re-refining of waste oils for use as lubricants and as fuel. The industry's wastes contain such potentially hazardous contaminants as heavy metals, phenols and potentially carcinogenic aromatic hydrocarbons. The report surveys industry characteristics, quantity and character of its potentially hazardous wastes, treatment and disposal technology, and attendant costs. Projections for the production of re-refined oil and generation of wastes have been made for 1977 and 1983.
