Oil Products & Lubricant – Recycle Base Oil

Automotive oil recycling involves the recycling of used oils and the creation of new products from the recycled oils and includes the recycling of motor and hydraulic oil.

Oil recycling also benefits the environment. Increased opportunities for consumers to recycle oil lessen the likelihood of dumping used oil on lands and waterways.

Maccoran Petroleum Company supplies recycled base oil SN 150 and SN 500.

Uses of Recycle Base Oil

  • Recycling used oil keeps it from polluting soil and water.
  • Motor oil does not wear out -it just gets dirty- so recycling it saves a valuable resource.
  • Less energy is required to produce a gallon of re-refined base stock than a base stock from crude oil.
  • One gallon of used motor oil provides the same 2.5 quarts of lubricating oil as 42 gallons of crude oil and so on….
