Recovery of used lubricating oil by extraction produced organic sludge and recovered base oil, but this oil has metallic content such as magnesium and zinc. In this study, purification of recovered base oil by using adsorption process to remove heavy metals was performed. Zeolite was used as an adsorbent. The parameters studied were contact time, amount of zeolite, temperature and their interactions. The results showed that zinc removal was higher than that of the magnesium. The optimum magnesium and zinc removal obtained were 50 and 62%, respectively. The most influential parameter affecting the magnesium and zinc removal was the time of adsorption. Further investigations on the optimum conditions will be performed.
