Abstract:

The study addresses the problem of disposing waste lubricants and contaminated fuels generated at Air Force Bases. The nature and rates of generation of several waste petroleum products such as lubricating oils, hydraulic fluids and contaminated jet fuel are considered. Present Air Force waste petroleum oils and lubricants POLS practices are reviewed including a description of operations at Kelly and Andrews Air Force Bases. Waste POLs data for other bases, generated by questionnaire, are also reviewed. Disposalrecycle options are identified and discussed. A general procedure for developing an effective waste POLs disposal system, for any Air Force installation is presented, including disposal decision making criteria and the disposal decision making process. Hypothetical examples, illustrating the mechanics of the procedure, are presented. The importance of a carefully planned program for implementing the developed waste POLsdisposal procedure is described including education of base personnel, enforcement of waste product segregation and management. Considerably high waste product values can be realized by the implementation of the described procedure. Author
