Abstract:

American industries tend to overlook the alternative of oil reclamation because of our relative affluence, and because its just been easy to throw oil out. But many factors are changing this situation. And technology now exists to produce reclaimed oil that is equivalent to new oil. Specialists in oil technology say, with only mild exaggeration, that really clean oil can be used and re-used indefinitely. Thus the key to gaining all the benefits of an oil recycling program is the recovery of oil at the source of its use, and closing the recycle loop. And the closer the loop, the less it costs. What are these benefits Cost savings on buying new oil. Better product quality and production efficiency. Savings in downtime of equipment and in repair and replacement of component parts. Reduction of waste oil disposal, its costs and liabilities.
