ABSTRACT

 

Crude Oil Washing (COW) waste causes pollution, it also leads to give various health problems. COW waste is an emulsion of sediments mainly bottom hydrocarbon with water. To convert COW waste into useful product, initially COW waste has to be de-emulsified. A research work was carried out to de-emulsified COW waste for further processing. It shows that continuous thermal treatment able to break the emulsion leads to give de-emulsified COW waste sample.
