|The re-refined Base Oil recovered from Used
Engine Oils is slowly and steadily becoming a
significant business opportunity for large and
small companies alike in the Middle East and all
over the world. Although the European Nations
and the US have a clear edge due to their
positive environmental regulations, other
countries are moving towards adopting these
stringent regulations and soon the world will be
catching up on this area of waste management.
Daya Lubricants will use its state of the art re-refining technology. The technology used at this JV Company will be similar to the one being used at Daya Lubricants Mumbai Plant which is ACID FREE. The plant will consist of a pre-treatment unit, a fractionation unit and a finishing/polishing unit. The company has plans to add a hydro-treating unit in future.
In order to enhance the quality of the re-refined base oils, the company has plans to add a hydro-treating unit in future. The base oil recovered will be of very good quality API Group-II specifications. The JV Company comes in the wake of Daya Lubricants’ plans to broaden its base and venture overseas seeing potential partners in various countries.
The commissioning of the plant has been slated for June-July 2013.
