THE re‐refining of used lubricating oil became established in Great Britain during the second world war and is now carried out by six main companies. The UK consumption of lubricating oils is about 1,150,000 tons per annum and only about 5 per cent of this is being recovered for further use. The remainder is either burned as fuel or disposed of as a waste material by tipping—causing a most serious pollution problem.
