Separation of oil or tar from contaminated sand using ionic liquids

We have developed a novel method for separating tar, oil or other hydrocarbons from sand, soils or other particulate matter through the use of ionic liquids (ILs). The separation occurs at ambient temperatures and does not result in the generation of waste process water.  The process is simple and relatively cheap because it only involves simple mixing/separation steps. Even though ILs are expensive, they can be recycled numerous times through a closed system and significant savings relative to current technologies can be achieved. A description of our research and a video of the process can be seen at:
