Abstract Induced air flotation was used to recover oil from synthetically prepared sludge containing oil. A commercial surfactant was used as the collector and frother. The effects of various parameters, namely flotation time, initial amount of oil in the feed and the amount of surfactant used on the recovery of oil were investigated. Within the range of operating conditions studied herein, the maximum oil recovery obtained was about 55\%. A detailed study of flotation kinetics based on oil recovery was carried out. It showed that the process followed first-order kinetics. This article was published in J Environ Manage and referenced in Journal of Advanced Chemical Engineering
