Eco Ultra two-year, 150,000-mile taxi-tough field test

Results show Universal Lubricants’ Closed Loop System protects engines and the environment

“We can repeat the process of re-refining used oil over and over again,” said Wyant. “It’s good for consumers, helps our nation’s economy and is the right thing to do to protect the environment.”

About 1.3 billion gallons of oil are used in the U.S. each year, but only about 10-15 percent of that oil is repurposed, said Universal Lubricants officials. Re-refining used lubricants requires up to 89 percent less energy and releases up to 65 percent fewer harmful emissions than refining from crude. 

Putting used lubricants into the re-refining cycle and treating oily wastewater also eliminates the danger that comes from improper disposal, they added. One gallon of improperly disposed motor oil can contaminate one million gallons of ground water.
