Safe & Transparent - Recycling in a Group
Only top quality recycling products can hold their own on the market. In our own refineries, we have created the best conditions for producing high-quality base oil from used oil that can compete with primary products. The added value that is obtained in this way benefits our customers by providing a fair price/performance ratio.
The group of refineries in which used oil is refined into quality products provides positive synergy effects. The manufacture of quality base oil in conformity with the European Waste Framework Directive and German used oil legislation has a high priority and requires process expertise and a special application of systems engineering.
At the refineries of Puralube at the Elsteraue site, every year over 150,000 tons of used oil are processed by means of catalytic hydroprocessing into base oils of the highest quality using the HyLube™ method developed by UOP.
