Who Can Use This Technology?

MemPore systems are ideally suited for used oil collectors and used oil generators.

These customers can now convert their used oil into high value clean base oil, thereby realizing substantially higher operating margins.

Because of:

  • Its small footprint—689 square feet.
  • Ease of operation.
  • Capacity – 5 to 6 million liters per year, or 1 to 2 million gallons.
  • Low operating costs.
  • High value base oil at the end of the process.

Economic Benefit

The actual economic benefit realized by each customer using a MemPore recycling system will vary, depending upon: cost of electricity, cost of local transportation, current market price of clear base oil, cost of used oil, and other individual overhead costs.

The following represents an example of the economic benefits of operating a MemPore Environmental Technologies system for recycling used oil into clear base stock oil, instead of re-selling the used oil. The data and assumptions used are derived from the experience of an actual collector and processor of used oil. Individual circumstances may vary and should be analyzed separately.

This example is presented for illustrative purposes only.
