Used Oils And Fuels
This country generates 1.4 BILLION GALLONS of recoverable, used oil every year. Only a fraction of that gets recycled or re-refined. Used oil that is illegally dumped, or otherwise disposed of, contaminates the environment. Every year, Americans illegally dispose of oil amounting to an equivalent of 30 Exxon Valdez super-tanker oil spills!
Since 1962, Kentucky Petroleum Recycling, Inc. (KPR) has created a market to close the loop on energy waste.
- When there were no markets, KPR found them.
- When there were no laws to discourage waste and pollution, KPR provided incentives to business and industries to recycle.
- When regulations were developed to require recycling, KPR, through NORA (National Oil Recyclers Association) advanced workable, market driven laws that encouraged, rather than discouraged compliance.
