Abstract: Various processes involved in the recycling of used lubricating oils were investigated. These processes were combined together to develop a pilot plant for the recycling of used lubricating oils, which was tested to evaluate the quality of the recovered oil. The composition analysis of the used oil shows that the major contaminants are sludge, water and sand. The optimum temperature of sludge extraction was determined to be 29 oC. The viscosity and the flash point of the recovered oil are higher than that of the used oil but slightly lower than the virgin oil. The results show that the pilot plant is to a large extent effective in removing contaminants from the used lubricating oil
