This work presents the production of sewage sludge oil by pyrolysis, shows the physicochemical properties and compares it with commercial diesel. The sewage sludge was dried and mixed to discarded cooking oil to increase the fuel conversion rate due to the pyrolysis process at an initial temperature of 25 °C and a final of 650 °C. The oil was distilled and analyzed in a Proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR), Gas Chromatogram and Mass spectrometry (GC-MS), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) to perform a structural characterization on the molecular distribution, groups of functions and the product thermal stability. The authors measured fundamental physicochemical properties like viscosity, density and flashpoint and compared the results with the corresponding commercial S-10 diesel properties observing good agreement.
