We’re doing more than re-engineering used oil and mitigating CO2 emissions
The Future of Sustainable Lubrication
Sustainability drives everything we do.
We’re committed to following global standards and best-practices for sustainability, waste minimization, and efficient use of materials.
And we’re committed to re-engineering used oils into the most advanced, sustainable base oils, motor oils, and lubricants available for our customers.
But we’re also committed to doing more. Such as doing things as efficiently as possible with Zero-waste Processing—and helping our customers demonstrate their commitment to mitigating CO2 emissions—while promoting solutions for greener mobility and manufacturing for a more sustainable future.
CARE FOR CLIMATE®
Promoting sustainability throughout the oil industry and beyond
PURAGLOBE is the leader of the global CARE FOR CLIMATE® initiative, which aims to promote sustainability throughout the oil industry and beyond.
Aside from sponsoring several winning teams, who share our values in helping to protect our climate and our future, the CARE FOR CLIMATE® initiative helps our customers demonstrate their commitment to reducing CO2 emissions.
And with the CARE FOR CLIMATE® certification, our clients can demonstrate how they’ve helped mitigate CO2 emissions by using our sustainable base oil products and services.
Global Standards & Certification
Supporting sustainability and energy efficiency
Along with our own exceptionally high standards of quality and sustainability, we adhere to some of the most demanding industry standards and certification requirements.
For example, PURAGLOBE follows the standards and specifications of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), including:
- ISO 9001: Environmental Management
- ISO 14001: Environmental Management Systems
- ISO 50001: Energy Management
- ISO 14021: Environmental Labels & Declarations
- ISO 14067: Carbon Footprint of Products
At PURAGLOBE, sustainability starts with collecting used oils, lubricants, and other precursors. We then re-engineer these used oils and lubricants into new, sustainable Group II through III+ base oils—and a wide range of sustainable motor oils and other lubricants in conventional and fully synthetic formulations.
Something is always better than nothing—except when it comes to pollution and production waste. That’s why PURAGLOBE is committed to Zero-waste Processing.
We make sure all that everything we start with—all 100% of it—gets re-engineered into sustainable base oils, solvents, lubricants, and other products.
Zero-waste Processing is part of our commitment to enabling cleaner and greener mobility and manufacturing. And it’s an integral part of Sustainable ECO2-lubrication—our comprehensive lifecycle of services that helps our customers transform their markets with greater sustainability.
Mitigating CO2 Emissions
Protecting the environment with proven results
PURAGLOBE was the first to produce 1 million gallons of sustainable base oil—and prevent more than 1 million tons of CO2 emissions—during the process, using our exclusive HyLube™ technology.
Since 2005, PURAGLOBE has helped our customers mitigate more than 2 million tons of CO2 emissions from entering the atmosphere, according to calculations verified by NSF and IFEU (2016, 2019).**
Everything we re-engineer, and everything we process helps mitigate CO2 emissions even more. And beyond re-engineering base oils, the sustainable, low viscosity motor oils and lubricants that we produce for our customers contribute to greater fuel-efficiency and eco-efficiency—which helps mitigate CO2 emissions even more.
Proven CO2 Mitigation
Certificates of CO2 Reduction
Every drop and every gallon of sustainable base oil we re-engineer helps mitigate CO2 emissions.
And we help our customers who participate in the CARE FOR CLIMATE® initiative demonstrate their commitment to helping protecting our environment with certificates of CO2 Reduction.
The CARE FOR CLIMATE® Certificates of CO2 Reduction show the amount of sustainable base oils our customers have used each year—and the amount of CO2 emissions they’ve helped to mitigate according to verified calculations.**
** PURAGLOBE determined the carbon footprint of its collection and re-refining steps to determine the environmental impact of the process. PURAGLOBE carbon footprint calculations of the re-refining process were verified by an independent third party, NSF International. This verification was done in accordance with requirements of ISO 14067: 2018, Greenhouse gases – Carbon footprint of products – Requirements and guidelines for quantification and communication and ISO 14064-3: 2006, Greenhouse gases – Part 3: Specification with guidance for the validation and verification of greenhouse gas assertions.
