We’re driven by sustainability & innovation
PURAGLOBE was founded in 1995 upon a simple promise: to help protect our environment by promoting sustainability throughout the oil industry and beyond.
We started with a bold plan. OK, maybe it was a bit too bold since it involved taking an unproven technology and making it a reality. Indeed, Honeywell UOP HyLube™ technology offered tremendous potential for sustainability and innovation. But it had yet to be developed for the high-volume production of sustainable base oils and lubricants.
Since then, nearly two decades have passed—and we’ve kept our promise. After years of pain-staking engineering, we became the first to produce 1 million gallons of sustainable Group II base oils—and the first to mitigate 1 million metric tons of CO2 emissions using our exclusive HyLube™ process technology (according to calculations verified by NSF and IFEU in 2016 and 2019).
But we didn’t stop there…
In addition to our exclusive HyLube™ process technology, we also developed our exclusive HyLubeSAT™ technology—along with our own proprietary innovations—to produce sustainable, premium-quality Group III/III+ base oils and lubricants for our customers as well.
And we’re striving to innovate even more. For example, we were told only 3 base oil straight cuts would be possible with HyLubeSAT™ technology. Yet, we’ve developed more than 20. And with our commitment to Zero-waste Processing and Sustainable Eco2-lubrication, we’ve helped mitigate more than 2 million metric tons of CO2 emissions from polluting the environment—while providing our clients with sustainable base oils and sustainable motor oil and lubricant solutions for cleaner and greener mobility and manufacturing.
Strategically located & highly efficient
Zeitz, Germany: The Home of Efficiency & Innovation
We currently operate two facilities in Zeitz, Germany. One has been designed for our exclusive Honeywell UOP HyLube™ technology, which we use to produce sustainable Group II/II+ base oils and solvents with exceptional efficiency.
The other is based upon HyLubeSAT™ technology, which we use to provide our clients with innovative, sustainable Group III/III+ base oil products.
Together, our facilities provide a wide variety of sustainable Group II to III+ base oil products for the European market and beyond.
USA & Americas
Tampa, FL USA: A Blueprint for Market Transformation
We are also developing a state-of-the-art facility for HyLubeSAT™ technology in Tampa, FL USA. Aside from sustainable re-engineering and mitigating CO2 emissions while blending sustainable motor oils and lubricants, the facility also features an efficient, high-volume packaging system—with a dedicated jetty for water access, along with rail and highway connections.
Our Tampa facility also serves as a “blueprint” for future development. Not just for the new facilities we have planned—but also for the ways our clients can produce sustainable motor oils and lubricants—and transform their regional markets.
Driven by sustainability and innovation
Guided by expert leadership, our diverse workforce strives to innovate and deliver exceptional services and sustainable base oil and lubricant products for our customers.
As an international company committed to sustainability and innovation, we foster a culture that:
