The paper proposes the development of an experimental model of boiler using waste oil revitalized with bentonite, for heating an industrial hall. The main objective is to present a new perspective on the use of waste oils, a framework in which it no longer presents a danger to the environment and to human health, as well as their energy use from an economic and ecological point of view. Experiments were performed to determine the adsorption of the impurities from the waste oil. One of the experiments is to compare the combustion of the revitalized waste oil with the combustion of raw waste oil. The results show improvements in the combustion process and decreases of the pollutant emissions for revitalized waste oil. The CO concentration decreased on average by 52% when and the NOx concentration increased by 57% due to the increase of temperature in the furnace in the case of burning purified oil. The experimental installation is adapted on an industrial hall.
