Innovating sustainable base oils, motor oils, and lubricants for today—and tomorrow
Innovating Sustainability & Market Transformation
PURAGLOBE was founded upon a commitment to innovating and promoting sustainability throughout the oil industry and beyond.
Since then, we’ve worked tirelessly to realize our vision of taking a different approach toward producing sustainable base oils, motor oils and lubricants—and enabling solutions for “cleaner and greener” mobility around the globe.
A big part of realizing our vision involves our efforts toward innovating Sustainable Eco2-lubrication: a comprehensive lifecycle of services—from collecting used oils, to re-engineering them into sustainable base oils, to blending motor oils and lubricants, and efficiently packaging and distributing them. Sustainable Eco2-lubrication helps our mitigate CO2 emissions—and enables them to transform their markets into more sustainable ones.
But there’s also the bigger picture. We’re not only innovating sustainable solutions for engines, drivelines, and other parts of cars, trucks, motorcycles and other modes of transportation—we’re developing sustainable solutions for other applications as in manufacturing, metal-working, textiles, and beyond.
Leading by example…
Aside from what we do, we’ve always had a clear vision of how we want to do it. That’s why we adhere to some of the strictest international standards and the most demanding specifications. We believe in leading by example, which is why we’re also leading the CARE FOR CLIMATE® initiative to work closely with our partners and customers to help mitigate CO2 emissions, protect our environment, and promote sustainability throughout the oil industry and beyond. And it’s all part of our vision to produce sustainable base oils, motor oils, and lubricants—with the highest efficiency, minimal waste, and leaving the smallest carbon footprint possible—while helping to protect our environment for future generations.
CEO & President
Of course, realizing our vision is part of everything we do—constantly improving is another part.
We own and operate the most technologically advanced facilities in the world for re-engineering used oil into sustainable base oils, and blending premium-quality motor oils and lubricants. And everyday we strive to innovate and improve.
For example, in developing our exclusive Honeywell UOP HyLubeSAT™ technology, it was thought that only 3 base oil straight cuts would be possible—so far, we’ve innovated more than 46.
We also work hard to constantly improve the quality and test the performance of our products both in the lab, and in real-world applications under the most grueling conditions. This helps us improve performance, but also helps make our research and development efforts more efficient and effective as well.
For example, in our collaboration with the CARE FOR CLIMATE® Racing Team, we tested a fully-synthetic SAE 5W50 engine oil and DCT fluid during the 2017 24-hour Endurance Race at the legendary Nuerburgring racetrack in Germany. Both were made with PURAGLOBE SYNTAINICS® Group III/III+ base oil technology and provided outstanding performance.
But we didn’t stop there…
We worked hard during the off-season to push the limits of sustainability and performance even further. And in 2018, the team raced their Porsche GT3 with an advanced, sustainable SAE 5W40 engine oil onboard.
And as part of our mission to continually innovate and improve we kept going. In 2019, we put a cutting-edge, sustainable 0W40 engine oil to the test—the first fully-synthetic 0W40 re-engineered from used oils to be developed and tested at Nuerburgring during the 24-hour endurance race.
So whether its continually innovating our base oil technology, operating our re-engineering and blending facilities more efficiently, or providing outstanding service, it’s our mission to constantly improve.
It’s what we do. It’s who we are. It’s PURAGLOBE.
