Waste Oil Analysis

Waste Oil Analysis

The waste oil management regulation issued by the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization regulates the principles for the temporary storage, collection, transportation, refining, energy recovery and disposal of waste oils. The main purpose of this regulation is to protect the environment and human health and to ensure the efficient use of natural resources.

Waste Oil Analysis

The said legal regulation mainly regulates the following issues within the framework of waste oils and the management of these wastes:

  • temporary storage
  • Collection
  • Move
  • Refining
  • Ensuring energy recovery
  • disposal
  • Measures to be taken and notifications to be made

Waste oils include mineral oils that are not suitable for their original use and are listed in the annex of the regulation.

Among the analysis of waste oil, there are flash point determination, chloride determination, total chlorine determination, liquid fuel analysis, density determination, ash content determination and heavy metal analysis (arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, phosphorus, zinc and calcium).

In these analyzes, the recovery of waste oils, their use as additional fuel or incineration at the hazardous waste disposal facility are evaluated.

These tests and analyzes are based on American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), International Standards Organization (ISO) and European (EN) standards.

In the tests and analyzes carried out in our organization, which has a wide range of technological equipment, trained and experienced staff and applies the most modern methods, national and international standards and legal regulations in force are complied with. Among the numerous tests carried out in this context, waste oil analysis services are also available.
