Lubricantes de calidad a partir de bases regeneradas

High-quality lubricants from regenerated base oils

We are leaders in applying circular economy principles in our lubricants business. Therefore, we transform products like used oils into new raw materials or base oils in order to manufacture new lubricants that have the same quality and functionality as traditional lubricants.

By incorporating regenerated raw materials into the manufacturing of new lubricants, we can decrease the amount of virgin feedstock we use that's derived from fossil sources and extend the useful life of used oils.

In this way, we are able to commercialize products that contribute to lowering our carbon footprint, and at the same time, strengthen our commitment to sustainability and to our customers, who increasingly demand more sustainable products.

Thanks to innovation, we can manufacture more efficient, environmentally-friendly products, which brings us closer to meeting our ambition of becoming a net zero emissions company by 2050.

Circular advantages

The resulting product, in addition to complying with stringent quality control standards, provides the following benefits:

  • Decreases our environmental footprint by reducing our CO2 footprint.
  • Regenerates waste by transforming it into raw materials.
  • Meets the circular economy objectives established by the European Commission.
  • Classification by key lines and value chain

    Our circular economy projects are aligned with the key lines of our strategy and are present throughout our entire value chain, from obtaining raw materials to commercializing products and services.

  • Innovation and technology in lubricants

    At Repsol, we develop new lubricants that, because of their lower viscosity and more sophisticated formulas, contribute to improvements in motor efficiency by consuming less fuel, and therefore, reducing CO2 emissions.
