Clarification of waste recycled cooking oil (WCO) is very important in order to refine the intermediate regenerated base resulting from the previous steps. Bentonite has been historically employed as a filling material for oil refining filters due to its easy availability and its cheap price. In the present communication our early results from the filtration of degummed WCO through a pad of bentonite are presented. In particular, the variation of density, flash point and color have been monitored prior and after the filtration process and compared with samples of non-filtered WCO. An early classification of the bentonite employed has been conducted on the basis of FT-IR and XRD measurements.
