Abstract
The feasibility of employing a combustion process for restoring oil contaminated beaches was investigated. Beach access problems and the handling characteristics of shore materials limited the potential application to recreational (sand) sites. Thermodynamic arguments required that a system design be adopted in which the contaminated sand would undergo combustive processing in a confined arrangement. The design selected, from those analyzed, proved to be a three-effect combustor based on the rotary kiln principle. Provided that the sand to be cleaned is carefully enough collected to furnish a reasonable (> or = 6%) oil content and is moved away from the surf and drained to an acceptable moisture level (> or = 6%), basic processing costs would be highly attractive. In comparison with uncontaminated sand, the cleaned product exhibits only a slightly greyish hue. (Author)

Provided that the sand to be cleaned is carefully enough collected to furnish a reasonable (ö>6%) oil content and is moved away from the surf and drained to an acceptable moisture level (ö<6%), basic processing costs would be highly attractive.
