Client: Castrol – Nexcel
E4tech conducted environmental and legislative assessments of a novel technology developed by Castrol / Nexcel that enables near 100% passenger vehicles oil recycling. Our work was used to underpin the separately completed economic business case ahead of the formal introduction in the Aston Martin Vulcan.
Life cycle analysis methodologies were used to quantify the positive global impact on air, water and soil pollution resulting from large scale adoption of this technology. Our model allowed a break down by region and by vehicle manufacturer, clearly demonstrating the significant improvement this technology would have.
Analysis of similar recycling chains were used to highlight the key ingredients required to build a successful waste engine oil chain. This included an evaluation of the applicable legislation, infrastructure and stakeholders implications. We are pleased that our study is helping Nexcel to engage with key stakeholders and is helping to bring this novel technology to market.
