Valvoline has unveiled two new 15W-40 oils that are made from 50% recycled oil.
The NextGen motor oils exceed industry specifications, Valvoline said, using an advancement in the oil re-refining process that allows for the use of used oil. According to the company, used oil contains fewer contaminants and more usable molecules than crude oil, resulting in a higher-quality base oil.
“The extreme conditions and on-the-go demands of heavy-duty equipment require a motor oil that can withstand that intensity and perform again and again,” said Peter Thomson, Valvoline director of commercial & industrial marketing. “Valvoline NextGen lubricants deliver that performance with the same quality and dependability of our conventional motor oils, or we wouldn’t put our name on the package.”
