Oil recycling: another step toward sustainability
Lubricants, at the cutting-edge of the circular economy
The circular economy is essential to achieving our goal of becoming a net zero emissions company by 2050. That's why Repsol Lubricants has worked to become a trailblazer applying the principles of the circular economy to our oils.
We are transforming used oils into new raw materials and base oils to manufacture new lubricants with the same functionalities and quality as traditional oils.
With this practice we are able to reduce the amount of virgin fossil-fuel-based raw materials used as well as extend the useful life of the oils used.
The result is an extensive product portfolio that reduces our environmental footprint and reinforces our commitment to sustainability as well as our customers’.

All backed by our AENOR (Spanish Association of Standardization and Certification) Circular Economy Corporate Strategy Certification.
Used oil and bottle management
We have been managing used oils and their bottles for years as part of our circular economy strategy. We call this “waste” management the reverse logistics system, through which we give new life to these products, use fewer and fewer resources from the planet, and reduce our impact on the environment.
