Refiners, Blenders, and Distributors of Rerefined Oil

Rerefiners

Evergreen Oil logo  Safety-Kleen logo

There are two rerefineries in the U.S. that produce the base oil: Evergreen Oil in California and Safety-Kleen in Illinois. These two rerefineries take in only a small percentage of the total used oil generated in the United States. The process they use is very similar to what traditional oil refineries do to remove base oil from crude.

Blenders

Blender logos: Union 76, Ultra, SOAR, Safety-Kleen, Lyondell, Chevron

Unocal, Chevron, Safety-Kleen, Coast Oil, Rosemead Oil, and Lyondell are the major blenders. Typically, an oil blender will purchase base stock from the rerefinery and combine it with an additive package to meet specific performance requirements. Rerefined oil comes in a variety of blends, suitable for different types of gas and diesel engines.

Distributors

To purchase rerefined oil, contact your regular supplier of lubricating oil and ask them to provide cost and technical specifications for the brands of rerefined oil they carry. If they don't carry rerefined oil, chances are their competitor does.

Bulk Sales: All of the blenders of rerefined oil, along with hundreds of independent distributors throughout the U.S., sell rerefined oil. It is widely available, but not widely marketed or promoted.

Quart Sales: The availability of rerefined oil in quart containers is limited. Unocal's "Firebird" brand and Safety-Kleen's "America's Choice" brand are produced in quarts, but not widely distributed. A few retailers, such as Wal-Mart and Kragen's, carry rerefined oil. Many Goodyear Service Centers also carry rerefined oil for oil changes.
