The results of a feasibility study for the burn-off of waste oils in Coast Guard power plants are presented. Among the factors considered in this evaluation were: simplicity, cost, engine manufacturers recommendations, mixing ratios, engine emissions, and effects on engine performance. Combustion in diesel engine, boilers, and gas turbines was investigated. As a result of this study it is recommended that waste oil be treated by procedures outlined in this study, blended at a mix ratio of 1% or less waste oil to diesel fuel oil, and burned off in Coast Guard power plants.
