The objective of the work reported is the development of technology to recycle waste oils to useful products, without producing undesirable wastes. Both crankcase and other waste oils were studied in the laboratory and in a 1000 barrel per day vacuum distillation process operated by National Oil Recovery Corporation in Bayonne, New Jersey. Plant operations demonstrated that vacuum distillation is a suitable process for producing fuels from a wide variety of waste oils. Laboratory and engineering studies showed that the distillate side product produced from crankcase waste oil could be catalytically hydrotreated to produce a lube with good odor, color, and stability characteristics. Overall, the vacuum distillation/hydrogen treatment process for re-refining waste oils holds great promise. The distillation bottoms, containing high concentrations of lead and other metals, can be used as a fuel in secondary lead smelting. Pretreatment and chemical reduction agents show promise in refining, but additional laboratory and evaluation work is required.
