Recycling and treatment processes is one of the acceptable means to reduce the effect of pollution from used oil. These recycling methods save some amount of time and money and also helps to conserve our natural resources. However, various methods have been used for used oil treatment which has resulted in toxic air emissions. This work monitored the emissions of Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) from used lubricating oil using a combustion analyzer. CO emission was found to be the highest emitted pollutant with MEC of 167.07 mg/m3 due to incomplete combustion. Also, CO concentration at dehydration exceeded the set limits which could cause adeverse effect to receptor locations while SO2 was within the limit. Hence, quantifying the emissions at each stage of this process is needed to control emissions in the sector. The predicted results in this study can help decision makers to formulate policy for controlling the impact of air emissions from used lube oil treatment plants using acid-clay treatment method.
