Chemical-Environmental Characterization of Waste Coming from Petroleum Industry for Application in Clay Ceramics
The petroleum industry generates huge amounts of oily sludge during the process of oil and gas extraction. This waste is a pollutant material that can cause environmental damage. Because of this, it has been treated with bentonite clay, being referred as encapsulated petroleum waste. In this work the chemical-environmental characterization and classification of the petroleum waste were done according to ABNT standards. The results indicated that the encapsulated petroleum waste should be classified as Class IIA – “No Inert”. Therefore, it could be used in manufacture of ceramic products for civil construction.
