Study of Roasting Fe2O3/EPDM to Remove Crude Oil in Water
In our study, a new kind of material for oil adsorption was prepared by melt blending with EPDM as the matrix and roasting Fe2O3 as the filler. The effects of dicumylperoxide (DCP) and roasting Fe2O3 contents on the oil absorbency were studied. The results show that the oil absorbency reaches the highest value for the roasting Fe2O3/EPDM composite with 2 wt % DCP and 30 wt % roasting Fe2O3. Comparing the oil absorbency for three samples, the experimental result indicates that the oil absorbency of roasting Fe2O3/EPDM composite is higher than that of EPDM (crosslinked) and EPDM.
