At Repsol, we seek alternatives that allow us to extend the useful life of our asset equipment and materials by reusing them either in our own or other companies' operations. Along the same lines, we also reuse equipment belonging to other third parties, giving them a second life in our facilities.
Ultimately, this makes it possible to extend the useful life of equipment and materials, while reducing the need to manufacture new equipment. This brings about significant benefits as it reduces the amount of virgin feedstock consumed and reduces our carbon footprint.
Examples of projects we are undertaking:
Fuels from urban waste
We recover leftover energy from urban waste that has reached the end of its useful life in order to produce fuels.
We obtain new polyolefins from recycled materials, while guaranteeing top quality and functionality.
We bring renewable energy generation to the point of consumption by creating solar communities.
Drilling mud management
We transform drilling mud waste into new fuels by applying thermal desorption techniques.
We transform plastic waste into circular polyolefins that feature the same quality and functionality of virgin materials.
Lubricants formulated with regenerated bases
We use base oils derived from the regeneration of used oils to produce new lubricants.
Reusing asset equipment
We extend the useful life of our asset equipment by reusing it in our own operations or those of other companies.
Reusing water from urban wastewater treatment plants
We reuse water from urban wastewater treatment plants to reduce the amount of fresh water consumed.
