Nowadays, removing of petroleum and nonpetroleum spills using low cost adsorbent materials is one of the important challenge all over the world. In this work, recycled textile fiber (TF) obtained from used tires has been used as a low cost static adsorbent for the treatment of water pollution by petroleum and non-petroleum oil. The effect of important parameters which are affecting on the removal efficiency these pollution from waste water including fiber mass, removal time, and temperature were investigated. The maximum yield removal of water pollutions by TF at room temperature were found to be 95.2% for fatty oil and 91.0% for crude oil. While, the maximum capacity and removal percentage yield removal of water pollutions by TF at room temperature were found to be 4.40 g/g and 95.2% for cooking oil and 4.20 g/g and 91.0% for crude oil respectively. The evaluation of adsorbent efficiency for only oil uptake which named “dry system” was also studied. The maximum adsorption capacity was found to be about 17 g/g for used cooking oil, and 14.4 g/g for crude oil which reached within 24 hr. Influence of compressed textile fiber from waste tires for the removal efficiency of oil from water-oil system was also studied. The compressed TF showed lower adsorption capacity than normal fibers (uncompressed) which found to be about 1.04 g/g. But the obtained results showed that the compressed TF can be successfully used for the storage and transport of recovered oil and the adsorbed oil not leaches out at room temperature for long time and it's easier to handle.
