  • The operations at the unit site must be safe and clean.
  • Enviromental protection of Air, Water, Soil and reduce noise.
  • Sharing and supporting the scientific search.
  • Ensuring that the petroleum product specifications are friendly with enviroment.
  • Using re-cycling, re-using methods and decreasing the loss during the processes operation.
  • Enviromental training and awareness.
  • Reduce petroleum wastes & Treating waste gases and waste liquid.
  • Treating product which is used as a fuel.
  • Re-cycling and Re-using petroleum waste.
  • Using protective maintenance system & close cooling systems..
  • Re-refining used motor oil.


What is used lubricating oil?
Lubricants are generally produced from the basestocks refined from the heavy fractions of crude oil or other hydrocarbons, to which various additives are blended.
Lubricants are used for a wide range of applications, including : engine and transmission lubricants fluids, metal, working fluids, insulating and process fluids and greases.
During service in theses applications, part or all of the lubricant may be consumed in the process, The balance tends to become contaminated with substances such as water, metal particles, rust, dirt, carbon and lead, and with other by-products of the combustion or the industrial process.
Why recycle used lubricating oil?
Used lubricating oil has an inherent value. To save scarce resources, this inherent value shoud be recoverd, where this is economically justified. This allowes recycling of the used lubricating oil back to lubricants, or their conversion into products such as furance fuels, power station start-up fuels, and diesel fuel extenders.
On the other hand, dumping of used lubricating oil, or any other enviromentally unsound disposal practice, can lead of the contamination of soil, air and groundwater
Facts about used oil
  • - The damage used oil causes comes from mismanagement.
  • - Re-refining used oil takes only about one-third the energy of refining crude oil to lubricant quality.
  • - One gallon of used oil used as fuel contains about 140.000 Btu of energy.
  • - A gallon of used oil from a single oil change can ruin a million gallons of fresh water - a year's supply for 50 people.
  • - Concentrations of 50 to 100 parts per million (ppm) of used oil can foul sewage treatment processes.
  • - Films of oil on the surface of water prevent the replenishment of dissolved oxygen, impair photosynthetic processes, and block sunlight.
  • - Oil dumped onto land reduces soil productivity.
  • - Toxic effects of used oil on freshwater and marine organisms vary, but significant longterm effects have been found at concentrations of 310 ppm in several freshwater fish species and as low as 1 ppm in marinelife forms.
What shoud lubricant users do with their used lubricating oil ?

Lubricating oil users shoud ensure that any used oil generated by their operations is stord securely and safely, and collected on a regular basis. Long term storage is discouraged. In addition:

  • - Consideration shoud be given to bunding systems, impervious storage compounds, and sheltered or weatherproof storage.
  • - Different types of used oil shoud be segregated when they are stored. The mixing of used oil with other cotaminants can create fire and health hazards, and shoud be avoided.
  • - Users shoud organise for the collection of the used oil by a collector that is licensed, or otherwise authorised to collect and transport used oil.
  • - Users shoud specify that such a collector transports the used oil to a licensed facility, such as a recycling plant, or other facility lawfully entitled to receive it.
  • - Householders with small amount of used lubricating oil shoud check with their local councils as to which waste transfer centers accept used oil, or whether there are other collection points or services are available in their areas.
  • In particular, the following disposal processed shoud be avoided:
    • - Uncontrolled dumping (outside authorised dumping facilities) on land, or into sewage systems or waterways.
    • - Dumping in household waste disposal wheelie bins.
    • - Unauthorised use a dust suppressant.
    • - Use as a low-temperature burner fuel
Re-refining of used oil

The problem of re-refining used oil lies in the process of collecting it from its diferent resources, which in turn guarantee the availability of the feed necessarily for units operations. The oil sector has made good steps to collect the used oil which can be summarized as follows:

  • - Cooperation Petroleum Company and Misr Petroleum Company are charged of collecting used oil from distributing companies.
  • - Establishing Petrotrade Company to collect used oil from all resources so as to increase the amount of collected oil.
  • - Obliging service stations to establish land tanks for collecting used oil.
  • - Distributing companies have established central collection tanks in the governments for collecting used oil to be supplied to Alexandria Petroleum Company.
  • - Conviction of dealing with used oil in faulty ways and not delivering them to the authorized parties, this is in the light of the Enviromental Law 4/1994, which has listed lubricating used oil among the hazardous material which is banned to be used unless there is license from the specialized administrative party, after the approval of the Enviromental affair Organization.
