Fuchs Lubricants to collect used oils

Jul 29, 2014

Fuchs Lubricants, the world’s largest independent lubricants company, in partnership with the Rose Foundation, has committed to collect at least 80% of its collectable used oil from customers in the mining, automotive, industrial and related sectors.

“Our aim is to create awareness that used oil is a hazardous but a recyclable resource. We want to influence customer behaviour in the handling and disposal of used oil through educational and marketing campaigns,” said John Anderson, Automotive OEM manager, Fuchs Lubricants.

“We are developing synergistic, stable and sustainable partnerships with groups that have similar objectives and in the process, we are raising awareness of Rose’s efforts and initiatives within member companies,” he said.

“This will enable the role of the National Oil Recycling Association of South Africa (NORA-SA) to be clearly communicated and understood.”

Fuchs Lubricants is also considering investments in improving the handling of various used oil containers at collector and bulking facilities to increase the volumes collected.
