Information @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • The purpose of an oil filter is to remove impurities from the oil used to lubricate an internal-combustion engine
  • A hot-drained oil filter still contains up to 0.2 gallons of oil that has been absorbed into the filter element
  • One gallon of oil can contaminate one million gallons of drinking water
  • There are two types of oil filters: terne-plated and non-terne-plated.
  • EPA regulation changed
    and now only considered terne-plated filters as hazardous. These filters remain on the hazardous list because the amount of lead they contain exceeds RCRA standards
  • Co-generation plant cleanly converts the paper, gasket rubber, and paint in the oil filters into electrical energy and use the waste heat to recycle oil, antifreeze and cleaning solvent
  • The filters are collected and stored in containment units and shipped to a materials processing facility. The oil remaining in the filters is then drained and collected, and the casings are shredded so the paper inside can be removed. Once the paper is removed, the residual oil is extracted, and the paper is used as a high-BTU fuel. The oil collected is shipped to a refinery where it gets re-refined for reuse
