Fuel from Oil Sludges

Based on detailed investigations of thermal treatment of various types of oil sludges, a thermochemical technology of obtaining liquid and gaseous fuels by means of steam thermolysis of sludges with subsequent gasification of the solid residues of thermolysis has been developed, the respective test equipment has been created, and the possibility of effectively obtaining liquid and gaseous fuels by means of steam thermolysis of sludges has been shown.
