Burning og Re-refining Used Lube Oil?
Life Cycle Assessments of the Environmental Impacts
A screening Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) was carried out in order to compare the resource consumptions and the environmental impacts of the following two product systems:
- One system for the production and use of lubriacting oil, and the burning of waste oil. (the burning system)
- One system for the production and use of lubricating oil, and the re-refining of used lube oil into lubricating oil. (the re-refining system)
