oils used by vehicle engines have to be replaced at least every
20 000 km.
This oil used to
be dumped, but now most of it is re-refined and reused. This is
done in a three step process, in which water, solids, lighter
oils, dissolved metals, degraded additives etc. are removed.
include: Dehydration, Diesel stripping, Lube oil distillation
extraction has been known as one of the potential techniques for
recycling used lubricating oil.
The solvents used were liquefied petroleum gas
(LPG) condensate and stabilized condensate.
The extraction process using stabilized
condensate demonstrated characteristics that make it competitive
with existing used oil treatment technologies.
The main products
of re-refining are diesel fuel, high and low quality lubricants
and heavy fuel oils used in industrial burners.
equipment costs of recycling used lubricating oil as a diesel
fuel supplement are $8,500 to $10,000, and the total capital
investment ranges from $57,000 to $80,000.
If the oil is
re-refined into lubricating oil for vehicular use, a net savings
of $1.50 per gallon could be realized.
