A time lapse video of the construction of the Northern Oil Refinery at Yarwun, near Gladstone, in central Queensland.
The Northern Oil Refinery represents a $55 million greenfields investment by Southern Oil and J.J. Richards and Sons.
The re-refining plant is a first for Queensland and has the potential to process 100% of Queensland's (30% of Australia's) annual production of waste/used lube oil.
About 350 million litres of waste lube oil is collected in Australia every year. Wastefully, 60% is burned and 24% is exported to be burned overseas, mainly in Asia.
High-end re-refining to recover base oil for re-use is the most environmentally responsible treatment of waste lube oil and Southern Oil believes it should be the process of choice for any used oil producer that is committed to its environmental credentials and reputation.
