oil extraction and processing operations in Malaysia have resulted in the production of large volumes of our sludge, which constitute it severe pollution problem for this industry.The our sludge contains crude oil (10-60%), water (30-90%) and petroleum
solid particles (5-40%) in various proportions depending on its origin.The accumulation
of oily residues in petroleum refineries poses a serious environmental problem, and it was
the oily sludge generated from several activities in the oil industry that motivated this
work, which has the overall aim of studying the bio treatment of oily sludge from
PETRONAS Penapisan (Melaka) tide. Ithd. Previous investigations have found several
factors limiting land farming which is large space requirements, the conditions
advantageous for biological degradation of contaminants are largely uncontrolled, which
increase the length of time to complete remediation, particularly for recalcitrant
compounds and inorganic contaminants are not biodegraded.This paper presents the
hiorcnncdiation treatment of'oily sludge using composting method as the disposal process.
the method that is use in this research is composting by introducing domestic waste to
cultivate and enhance microbial degradation of this hazardous compound.
