Why is Recycling Oil Important?

Oil recycling can significantly reduce the consumption of raw materials. The very process of recycling oil also contributes to the reduction of carbon dioxide emission. Each year, up to 120 million tons of waste oil are produced worldwide. Oil which cannot be reused or recycled is often burned without any pretence.

Instead, it should be used as fuel for new vehicles to reduce carbon dioxide emission on a large scale. The main aim of these programs is to recover waste oil from various sources to reuse in future automobiles. This way, it is possible that up to 4 million gallons of waste oil will be converted into fuel each year by 2025.
