Renewable Resources Created from Used Oil
Crystal Clean’s state-of-the-art oil re-refinery in Indianapolis, IN is permitted to process up to 75 million gallons of used oil per year. The used oil is transformed into our three primary re-refinery products: high-quality Group II base oils, vacuum tower asphalt extender (VTAE), and hydrotreated low sulfur fuel oil (HT-LS).
Our re-refined oil products go through rigorous laboratory testing to ensure it meets or exceeds API and ILSAC industry standards. All base oil products we produce are well suited for a wide variety of automotive, industrial, and marine lubricants, as well as diluents for additives and process oil applications. In all of our endeavors, we give the highest priority to understanding and satisfying the unique requirements of each individual customer. Our attention to detail ensures that our customer base receives on-specification, high quality lubricant base oil for blending API Licensed automotive and other industrial finished products.
Our HCC150 Group II base oil, when formulated with additives from any of the major additive producers, exceeds the latest industry standards: API SN and ILSAC GF-6 for passenger car motor oils, and API CK-4/SM for heavy duty engine oils. On average, we produce 3,000 barrels of Group II base oils each day, 20,000 barrels of vacuum tower asphalt extender each month, and 9,000 barrels of hydrotreated low sulfur fuel oil each month.
Crystal Clean is a proud member of the Independent Lubricant Manufacturers Association (ILMA), the National Oil Recyclers Association (NORA), the Asphalt Institute, and the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE).
