The increasing number of automobiles across the globe is driving the demand for lubricants. Producing base oil from crude oil is an energy-intensive process. A refinery needs to process 100 gallons of crude oil in order to produce one gallon of base oil. On the other hand, only 1.4 gallons of used oil is sufficient to manufacture one gallon of base oil. Petrochemical sources are depleting and increasing prices of crude oil are encouraging oil manufacturers to find new methods to re-refine and utilize waste oil. This makes recycling of used oil a fairly viable process for base oil manufacturing.
The waste oil collected from engines, which has toxic and hazardous to the environment if disposed of in open spaces. And also, the limited availability of feedstock required for the manufacture of virgin oil is driving the need for use of recycled base oil.
The used oil is the feed of Recycled base oil unit plants, this Product is eco-friendly and it generates lower carbon emissions than virgin base oil. The rise in the focus on sustainability of the environment across the globe is providing a significant opportunity to the global recycled base oil market. Thus, environment protection bodies across the globe have formulated strict regulations to control the disposal of used oil.
