Base Oil

Used oil can be re-refined into lubricants, processed into fuel oils, and used as raw materials for the refining and petrochemical industries. Additionally, used oil filters contain reusable scrap metal, which steel producers can reuse as scrap feed.

So, how is used oil recycled? Note that the most preferred option, re-refined oil—must meet the same stringent refining, compounding, and performance standards as virgin oil for use in automotive, heavy-duty diesel, and other internal combustion engines, and hydraulic fluids and gear oils. Extensive laboratory testing and field studies conclude that re-refined oil is equivalent to virgin oil—it passes all prescribed tests and, in some situations, even outperforms virgin oil.

The same consumers and businesses that use regular oil also can use re-refined oil, since re-refining simply re-processes used oil into new, high-quality lubricating oil. Any vehicle maintenance facilities, automobile owners, and other machinery maintenance operations that use oil also can use re-refined oil. In some cases, fleet maintenance facilities that use large volumes of oil arrange to reuse the same oil that they send to be re-refined—a true closed recycling loop.

Base Oil (Virgin and Recycled)

The purity of base oils means that your additive packages can be optimized to meet performance objectives at lower treat rates and reduced cost. Your formulators won’t have to worry about compensating for the quality of the base stock in your finished products. You have more freedom in new product development.

Our Base oils can improve the performance of your finished engine oils and other lubricants. Better viscosity control and reduced volatility help cut lubricant consumption and provide fuel economy benefits. This also enhances cold start operation. Your customers can expect improved equipment protection and extended lubricant life due to superior oxidation and thermal stability.
