Abstract
As petroleum prices increased dramatically in the 1970's, the burning of used oils as supplemental fuel in boilers and space heaters became the most common recycling method for used oils. Congress, in passing the Used Oil Recycling Act, expressed the concern that the contaminants in used oil might be released as hazardous air pollutants as a result of burning used oil, and directed EPA to consider the need for regulations in this area. This report uses used oil composition data, combustion testing data, air dispersion modeling techniques, and pollutant health effects data to quantitatively assess the hazards that might result from burning used oils under certain situations.
