Study on the Oil-Absorbing Materials with Waste Plastics


Article Preview

The shockproof foam (EPE) was screened out as a cheap and efficient oil-absorbing material in this paper. The influences of the particle size, the time of oil-absorbing, the aperture size of waste plastics, oil slick thickness on the oil-absorbing properties were investigated. The second and third time oil-absorbing capacities were also discussed. The results showed that (a) the best conditions of recovering spilled oil by use of shockproof foam (EPE) were as follows: the size of particle was 5mm, the time of absorption was 15 min, and the thickness of oil layer was more than 2 mm. (b) After appropriate pressing and centrifugal deoiling, the quality of oil-absorbing was effective in second and third time. The saturated oil-absorbing capacity reached to 30g/g. The double control effect was achieved by waste to pollution.
