Recycling

Auto Blue Oils is a oil recycling company that collects used oil from all oil using sectors.

We recycle to ensure our clients prevent environmental damage while saving money.

Oil Recycling

The Environment

Oil recycling protects the environment as it is allowed to seep it into the ground instead of letting it go straight into rivers or any other waterways.

Accordingly, the natural environment and sources of drinking water remain uncontaminated.

Your Solution to Oil Pollution

Background

The Old Oil Man

Did You Know?

A release of used oil to the environment, whether by accident or otherwise, threatens ground and surface waters with oil contamination there by endangering drinking water supply and aquatic organisms.

Used oil can damage the environment in several different ways:

  • Spilled oil tends to accumulate in the environment, causing soil and water pollution. Oil decomposes very slowly. It reduces the oxygen supply to the micro-organisms that break the oil down into non-hazardous compounds.
  • Toxic gases and harmful metallic dust particles are produced by the ordinary combustion of used oil. The high concentration of metal ions, lead, zinc, chromium and copper in used oil can be toxic to ecological systems and to human health if they are emitted from the exhaust stack of uncontrolled burners and furnaces.
  • Some of the additives used in lubricants can contaminate the environment. E.g. zinc dialkyl dithiophosphates, molybdenum disulphide, and other organo-metallic compounds.
  • Certain compounds in used oil – eg poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) – can be very dangerous to one’s health. Some are carcinogenic and mutagenic. The PAH content of engine oil increases with operating time, because the PAH formed during combustion in petrol engines accumulates in the oil.
  • Lubricating oil is transformed by the high temperatures and stress of an engine’s operation. This results in oxidation, nitration, cracking of polymers and decomposition of organ- metallic compounds
  • Other contaminants also accumulate in oil during use – fuel, antifreeze/coolant, water, wear metals, metal oxides and combustion products.

As it is already mentioned above that if used oil is disposed in irresponsible manner it may cause great danger to the human resources like water supply. The environmental effects of used oil can be categorized as follows.

  • Human health effects of used oil
  • Effects on Wetlands and Wildlife
  • Effects of Burning Waste oil
  • Effects on Marine and Fresh water organisms
  • Effects of using waste oil as dust control agent

Waste Management Act In South Africa – With the introduction of the new “NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT WASTE ACT”  in March 2009 (Act No 59 , 2008) South Africa now has a fixed set of rules that waste generators and disposers have to comply with. Use Auto Blue Oils to dispose your used oil to ensure that your company complies with the legislation in the Waste Management Act.

Did you know that 1 litre of oil,can contaminate 1 million litres of fresh water resources?
