What products are made from used oil?

There is a strong market for used oil. Re-refining used oil into new lubricant completely restores the original lubricating properties of the oil and takes about one-third of the energy of refining crude oil to lubricant quality. Re-refined oils meet all new car lubricating specifications.

Used oil is also re-refined into fuel for burning in various heaters, and can also be burned directly for energy.

Oil filters are shredded, heated to a molten state and the metals re-used as material for other metal products such as rebar, nails and wire.

Empty plastic oil bottles can be recycled into new containers, plastic flowerpots, plastic pipe, guardrails, fence posts and plastic patio furniture.
