This study evaluates the technical, economic and environmental feasibility of automotive waste oil reuse as a fuel. The supply and potential marketability of waste oil fuel is considered in relationship to existing and projected fossil fuel usage in the United States. Moreover, its use will alleviate a serious waste oil disposal problem. The physical and chemical properties of waste oil are presented and serve as the basis for subsequent assessment of waste oil usage options. Options considered are the use of untreated waste oil as a blended fuel oil or as a supplement to coal combustion and the use of waste oil following treatment to alleviate technical and environmental impacts. Various treatment methods are discussed and their cost and effectiveness assessed. The reduction of environmental impacts by the use of particulate emission control system and industrial utilization of fuel and control equipment.
