In 2009 Universal Lubricants built one of the world’s most technologically advanced oil
re-refineries adjacent to our headquarters in Wichita, Kan. There, used oil is brought in from across several states and re-refined to produce a Group II base oil for direct sale or blending into our ECO ULTRA line of products. At this state-of-the-art re-refinery we use the latest technologies to maximize efficiencies and minimize the environmental impact.
The used oil produced in our re-refinery:
Meets requirements for Group II base lube stock
Meets the American Petroleum Institute standards
Meets warranty requirements for new automobiles by meeting API Standards
Is accepted by major automobile manufacturers including Ford, GM, Chrysler,
Honda, Toyota and Mercedes, as an API-approved lubricating oil made with
re-refined base stock
Other byproducts of the re-refining process include:
Flux extender, used to enhance asphalt products
Fuel products for internal and/or third-party use
Treated water from our state-of-the-art, in-house wastewater treatment facility, which is made available to the city of Wichita
From our headquarters in Wichita, KS – the site of our 12-million-gallon re-refinery – we distribute premium, re-refined oil to locations throughout the country. A total of 36 facilities in 16 states provide support to our closed loop business model.
