Furthermore, the obtaining of soot from waste oils used for synthesis of nanostructured soot with hydrophobic properties. It was conducted a number of experimental studies to identify optimal conditions for increasing the hydrophobic properties of nanostructured soot particles during the combustion of waste oils, depending on the soot collecting height of the flame front. The gas flow rate ranged from about 250-300 cm3 / min, collecting the nanostructured soot produced by the flame height 2, 2.3, 2.5, 3 and 4 cm. Macroscopic soot deposition on the substrate surface starts at a distance of 2.3 cm from the beginning of the flame front. Increasing the distance of 3 cm increases the amount of soot, but the soot surface contact angle less than composes 120?. It was found that the optimal regime of nanostructured soot having superhydrophobic properties with wetting angle 150? over a distance of 2.5 cm collection. Nowadays known work on the production of the hydrophobic sand covered with nanoparticles of pure silica which were obtained by evaporation of silicon compounds called trimethyl siloxane, which are expensive. Thus, we can say that we have obtained cheap sand with hydrophobic properties from waste oil.
