A number of studies are currently being conducted to minimize the impacts caused by wastewater produced by the petroleum industry. In this respect, wastewater samples from the oil company PETROBRAS were characterized and treated with paraffin, beach sand and graphite to assess the removal efficiency of these hydrocarbon-containing materials. For this study, the affinity of oil with these adsorbing materials was assessed (chemical composition of paraffin and graphite and sand porosity). The samples were submitted to the adsorption process, varying their masses, but keeping the volume of the crude sample analyzed fixed. A comparative study was also carried out on the relationship between turbidity (Hanna turbidity meter) and oil and grease content (InfraCal analyzer). Tables and graphs were created based on the results of the study, showing the performance of the materials in the treatment of contaminated water. Paraffin and sand removal was approximately 68% and grafite 76%, but factors such as physical properties, granulometry and material behavior at varying temperatures should also be considered.
