The disposal of waste oils and sludges is exceptionally challenging. Generally, waste types are defined based on the waste product or industry. The term "waste oils" can be applied to different materials, making defining and creating a standard disposal process difficult.

Many types of waste oils also have a very high calorific value, making them highly combustible, creating a concern for operator safety. The incineration process aids in operator safety by containing volatile materials for safe and efficient disposal.
