About the Company
“We recycle Used Motor Oil (UMO) to reduce GHG while producing a lower carbon-intensive marine fuel.”
Globally over 26 billion litres of UMO1 are generated each year with approximately 80% of global waste oil being either burnt or dumped. EnerPure has developed a patented process and technology that solves this problem. Based on proven technology, but deployed on a scale not seen before, our micro-scale recycling plants can solve this problem due to its small footprint and low capital requirements.
Our technology has been proven via our full-scale pilot & demonstration plant and is now ready for deployment to start building a truly sustainable energy system within our generation, while preserving the global economy. Our marine fuel product is already in high demand due to meeting the exacting standards of the IMO 2020 fuel standard while delivering a carbon intensity that is 8-14% lower than marine fuel produced from crude oil.
1UMO is defined as any petroleum-based or synthetic lubricating oil that cannot be used for its original purpose due to contamination.
