Recycling process

The waste oil recycling process includes the following operations:

    Upon reception at the site, used oils are measured on a certified scale.
    A sample is taken for the presence of water and antifreeze; in case of doubt about the quality, additional field tests are performed or sent for laboratory analysis.
    Used oils are stored in 180 kg drums under shelter or in tanks.
    Used oils are transported to the site in 180 kg drums or certified 900 kg containers, and from the site to the recycling plant with specialized tank trucks.
    Vacuum distillation or purification and centrifugation.

During vacuum distillation, oils are divided into separate fractions of base oils which can be
used to produce fresh motor, hydraulic and other oils, as well as tar
used in the production of asphalt, bitumen, etc.

There are other recycling methods, such as purification and centrifugation, but they are not as effective and the resulting products have more specific applications.
