Experimentally determined concentrations of anthropogenic emissions resulting from direct combustion of petroleum products for energy production are presented. Refined oil and wastes of oil origin, i.e., oil sludge and used turbine oil, were considered as fuels. The concentrations of sulfur and nitrogen oxides were measured with varying temperatures in the combustion chamber. Significant differences were found in the emission characteristics of the examined fuels. The concentrations of anthropogenic emissions of SO2 and NOx produced during combustion of oil sludge were shown not to exceed current state environmental standards.
