    Abstract :

    Oil effluent from oil industry seems to be heavy in oil content and if not disposed off properly leads to environmental and health problems. Also since it has got large amount of oil which is precious source of energy, is lost. Oil effluent is decomposed/ treated over a past few decades either by land filling or drying. However land filling again leads to environmental pollution. Therefore drying is more opted over land filling because the sludge that we get after drying can be used as potential fuel. However high moisture content resists burning. This paper investigates the treatment of oil sludge from oil effluent by saponification followed by treatment by citric acid.
