Recycling oils to create more sustainable lubricants

We are leaders in applying circular economy principles in our lubricants business. Therefore, we transform 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.

On the path to meeting our goal

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 ecological footprint, and at the same time, strengthen our commitment to sustainability and to our customers, who increasingly demand more sustainable products with less environmental impact.

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.

Innovation and technology in lubricants

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